Sessions and Events

Group Gathering

The 2021 Annual Meeting Group Gathering will have a different format than in previous years as the membership at large will congregate to discuss the current state of the organization and proposed changes to the Membership bylaw. You must have Zoom downloaded on your computer to access the session. In order to keep the flow of the session, all livestream viewers should mute their microphones. There will be a live Q &A at the end of the session so feel free to use the chat box to ask questions and a Staff member onsite will pass along the question for you. The session will also be recorded for future viewing.
Date: Thursday, September 23
Time: 4 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.(CT)
