    Please join us for a Zoom meeting.  Many of you are now working from home or perhaps in your department office most likely alone.  NHRPA would like to give you a platform to talk with other members of our association and discuss the topics that are on everyone's mind right now due to our ever changing environment and COVID-19.

    Please CLICK HERE and complete the attached survey by the end of the day on Monday, April 6th.  The information will be discussed and shared during the webinar.  

    Take care and stay well!
