Unfortunately, I experienced car trouble on the way home from work which prevents me from making tonight’s meeting. I apologize for this and for the short notice, but it was unavoidable. The October 17th business meeting should still go off as planned, and in accordance with our bylaws you may still submit your nominations for candidates for Chapter officers and directors via email to firstname.lastname@example.org up until 11:59 p.m. on October 13th.
The Clear Lake Area Chapter will meet on Tuesday, September 19th in the conference room of the Bay Area Community Center in Clear Lake Park beginning at 6:30 p.m. The address is 5002 NASA Road 1; Seabrook, Texas. The Community Center is north of NASA 1, away from the lake; enter through the side door adjacent to the parking lot as the main entrance may be locked after 5:00 p.m. The conference room is on the right down the hall as you come in that side entrance door. A Zoom meeting option will also be available; the information is given below.
We’re expecting that Mr. Dave Cheuvront will come and share with us on the legislative outreach efforts of NSS, with emphasis on success stories and the ways in which you, personally, can get involved!
Our meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. and run about two hours. We’re planning to offer a few light refreshments and bottled water; your own contributions are also welcome of course!
