State Licensing Committee

Samantha "Sam" Sliney - Chair

MSJDN’s state licensing initiative is run by a committee of state directors working with teams of volunteers to implement strategic state licensing initiatives on a state-by-state basis. There is a need for State Directors in several jurisdictions. In addition, volunteers are needed to support State Directors around the country on MSJDN’s state-level initiatives.
