ArkACRAO's annual business meeting was more than just business. We got the opportunity to recognize Wayne Banks for his years of service to SAUTech, ArkACRAO by offering him lifetime membership in ArkACRAO. President Chad Cox commented, "It's an honor for me to present lifetime membership to Wayne as he was installed as ArkACRAO president at my first conference." It was also a fitting venue as Wayne has contributed much to SACRAO as well.

Thank you, Wayne, for your many contributions to ArkACRAO and SACRAO over the years!
