Note: Registrants will receive Zoom registration link and meeting info in their confirmation and reminder emails.
Zoom will allow participants to interact with each other via audio and video on their computer, tablet, or smartphone app in a real virtual meeting (optional alternative audio available by telephone) where we will be able to see and listen to each other in real dialog.
In the event of bad weather, we will only cancel if power is out for necessary meeting managers, in which case, meeting registrants will be emailed.
The Golden Circle Potluck is an event for all NAPO Golden Circle members, including those who are not members of the NAPO-WDC chapter.
Please bring a dish to share. If you are a Golden Circle member and would like to attend, please RSVP to Lauri Mennel (email@example.com). She will provide the address.

The Silver Spring Neighborhood Group (SSNG) is for NAPO-WDC Chapter members who live in Maryland or the District of Columbia. They meet via Zoom on the third Thursday of the month, from 7 PM to 8:30 PM. You will receive login information upon registration for this event.
Sara Wiggins is the Neighborhood Group Coordinator. Her contact information will be included at the bottom of the registration confirmation email.
Please note that there will be a maximum of 15 attendees to keep the forum intimate as Neighborhood Groups are intended.
