2022 - 2023 Season
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all of our upcoming events will be virtual events. We hope to meet again in person when conditions improve.
We will be using Zoom. You will need a computer, tablet, or smart phone with a camera and microphone to attend, although it is possible to call in to the Zoom meeting by telephone for audio only.
We will be sending email invitations to the Zoom meetings, which will include a link to the registration page. You will receive a link to the meeting when you register.
If you do not already have the Zoom application installed,
you will be given instructions to do so. It is very easy and runs on most devices.
The meetings will be for JASNA members and prospective members only, so please do not share the link with non-members.
Save The Dates!
