Annual chapter meet-up
6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
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.
Congratulations TO OUR VC MEMBERS!
