Upcoming Meeting Information

Annual chapter meet-up

April 22, 2021
6:30 PM to 8:00 PM


Zoom Meeting

It's a Virtual Party


We like to meet face to face annually during the national NAPO conference. NAPO2021 is virtual, and so our meet-up will be virtual. Different from your usual Zoom meeting, this party comes complete with Cocktail/Mocktail, networking, NAPO VC-branded wear, NAPO VC music, and a photo booth. We are out to change your perception of virtual meetings while getting to know you better.
