Capital District (NY - area codes 518 and 845)

Meetings

Affiliate meetings take place on the third Wednesday of the month from 5-6:30 pm.

Meetings will all be virtual, usually through Microsoft TEAMS platform. Meeting invitations will be sent by email to the members. Please contact one of the officers if you are not receiving the emails. We ask that you join the meeting online with your microphone and video on so that we can interact as a group and see each other’s faces. We understand that the last two years have led us to new ways of doing things and rather than going back and forth between meeting in person, understanding the changing guidelines, and the hesitancy of some to gather in a group, we have made the decision to be virtual this year.

 

PLEASE NOTE THE MEETINGS FOR JANUARY AND FEBRUARY 2022 ARE CANCELLED.

The first meeting of the year for 2022 will be March 16, 2022.

Further schedule for meetings TBD.

 

The usual meeting format is vendor sponsored information/update or education, followed by a business meeting and peer clinical sharing.

We plan to work towards redefining our goals and community outreach this year in the age of Covid.
