  1. I am in the Tallahassee area and in need of certification. I had started in Orlando, but it has dissolved. I am wonderfully familiar with the Natuonal Council and was told to wait for Tallahassee to form. If my area is ready, how do I get in contact? Thank you so much in advance for any assistance.
