Please join the CPA for our November General Membership Meeting, which has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 29 at 12:00 pm at the Taft Center.  We are excited to announce that our speaker for November will be Mary Kay Koehler with ProKids. 

ProKids is a nonprofit agency that provides volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children in Hamilton County, who - through no fault of their own - are in the child protection system.  Most of these children were taken from the only family they have ever known, and placed in foster care. These child victims need a powerful voice, an advocate on behalf of their best interests.

This is where CASA Volunteers come in.  A CASA Volunteer is a Court Appointed Special Advocate - a trained volunteer who advocates on behalf of the best interest of a child in the foster care system. A child in foster care has occasional court hearings where important decisions are made regarding the child’s future, including educational and medical needs, visits with family, and, most importantly, where the child will ultimately live.   

ProKids recruits, trains, and supports CASA Volunteers to provide a powerful voice to these children. A national study shows that children with CASA volunteers spend less time in long-term foster care and move less often.

Would you like to donate to this worthwhile cause?  We have a way!  ProKids is currently in need of gift cards to places like Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, BP, Shell, McDonalds, Chipotle, etc. for the children and families in their program.  We would like to invite our members to donate a $10 gift card at this meeting in support of ProKids.  You may also want to also check with your firm or office to see if they may be willing to make a donation for this cause.    

We hope that you can join us on November 29th for what is sure to be an insightful meeting!!

Box Lunches from Chick-Fil-A will be available for purchase, which will include your choice of Chicken Sandwich or Wrap, along with a chocolate chip cookie and waffle fry potato chips.  The cost is $7.50 per boxed lunch. Your lunch order can be placed during registration. The deadline to register for this meeting is Monday, November 27.

If you are unable to attend this meeting but would still like to donate, please feel free to mail your donation to Albina Anneken at Lindhorst & Dreidame, 312 Walnut Street, # 3100, Cincinnati, OH 45202.
