ASSP Chapters: Guidance on Return to Face-to-Face Programming COVID-19 has changed what we do and how we do it. This includes how our members and leaders approach chapter meetings and events. ASSP chapters connect members to valuable education, networking and leadership opportunities. We know leaders and members are eager to reconnect through face-to-face programming. At the same time, we all must remain vigilant about protecting the safety and health of members, leaders and attendees. To do so, we must continue to monitor the latest information about this public health issue and recognize how chapter activities may impact the Society’s reputation. While each chapter must exercise its own judgment, we continue to strongly counsel all chapters to align with the Society’s approach and hold off scheduling in-person meetings of members or leadership teams through August 31, 2021.
