APRIL 2019

President's Message

Hi everyone! I look forward to seeing many of you at the 2019 NAPO Conference in Fort Worth in April. If you cannot attend this year, then maybe next year. Look for posts on the Virtual Chapter Facebook pages and in the VC Point. 

The Virtual Chapter Meet Up is a bit different this year. We are all meeting for dinner (no cost to members) at 7:00 PM Friday, April 5, at Vidalias restaurant in the conference hotel. The venue needs an accurate head count so we ask that you register via this link to let us know you are attending https://goo.gl/forms/rqeUuJw9JsxktqPk2.

Since we all have friends from around the NAPO world, feel free to invite those not yet Virtual Chapter members to join us at the Vidalia at 8:30 PM for friends, fun, and fellowship. All non-VC attendees will be invited to the May 13 Virtual Chapter program FREE.  

At conference, look for one of our VC board members to get your Virtual Chapter bling -- buttons, lanyards and ribbons to help us connect with each other during conference!  

No monthly virtual meeting in April because of conference. We'll pick up our monthly meetings again in May with Lauren Mang  presenting "Managing Difficult Clients with Clear Boundaries," 

Looking forward to seeing you in person in April or virtually at the next monthly meeting.
