1. From the Executive Director's Desk
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. I was in Arizona all week and am catching up with things now. The next few weeks will be very busy as the year wraps up; stay tuned for information regarding the 2013 Spring NAO Conference, the FY13 Federal Budget, and a whole host of other important items in the coming weeks.

Have a great week!
Rob
