How will I know if I'll my chapter will be in-person or virtual?

Regional staff will send out information for each chapter prior to the weekend to give details about where and when people will be meeting virtually or in-person.

Do I have to be in-person?

No, it's an option to have small groups meet from chapter and regional boards at this time; however, its not mandatory. For all events this year, we will have an option to always join virtually. We want to be respectful of everyone's comfort level around gathering in-person.
