The meeting will be led by District 2 City Director Elaine Jones with guest speaker Minnie Lenox, director of the city's Human Resources department.

This is an informal meeting and the public is welcome.
Immediately following the discussion, the NAACP will hold its regular monthly meeting at the center.
