GA NAPNAP Online Town Hall Meeting

For the past few months, our board has been trialing Zoom, an online platform, to connect via video for our board meetings. This has been helpful and convenient. It has bridged the logistical barriers that impacted how we connected as a group.

We are excited to now offer this service to our membership and we want YOU to be a part. For our first event, we have invited charter members of GA NAPNAP, Cathy Jordan, CPNP & Barbara Sweeny, CPNP. Both women have been influential in shaping the chapter. Please see the flyer attached for details.

Additionally, we want to update the membership on our upcoming board elections and detail the positions we will have available. Please consider becoming a candidate!! This is a great way to learn some leadership skill, collaborate with a great team of colleagues and make an impact on this organization. Please feel free to ask any questions during our online session. 

Zoom is super easy to use. We have included 2 links below for your review. The first link just gives an overview of what Zoom is and how it works. The second link details the exact steps to get connected. You have the option to use your laptop or cellphone. You can select audio only or join via video. Pick the option you feel most comfortable with. The meeting on April 22 will start at 7:30 but will be available for you to log on at 7:00 pm to give everyone a chance to make sure they get connected. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
