NSS March 21st – General Meeting is Cancelled & Late March/April Preview

NSS General Meeting: March is Cancelled

Our thoughts are with all those affected by COVID-19, including all those caring for our public. Understanding of COVID-19 continues to evolve as well as changing public health actions taken as a Nation, to help reduce the spread of the virus. The Humanist Society will be closing its doors for the time being though out this crisis. At this time Social distancing is encouraged. This change remains is in effect and will be determined as situations are evaluated.

Virtual Space? and Time Warps? – Addressing this public health crisis has opened an opportunity for NSS PHX to do more content for video conference and online. Currently our Chapter has broadcast on YouTube, helped create a webinar session and participated in various conferences and world conferences in our efforts to promote space and inspire youth.

For March, the General meeting is postponed. For April and May we plan on enabling our Monthly General Meetings to be in “Virtual Space” Via Zoom Video/phone Conference be on the lookout for time changes or these “time warps” as we navigate this new virtual  venue. Our open business meetings and officers meetings will also report in video phone conferencing via Zoom Conference as scheduled for the time being.

It’s been a crazy month for us; however, I would like to extend my gratitude in advance for helping to keep healthy, also having flexibility and patient to our changes. With that here is our March Announcement:
