-Jason brought up having a speaker about the Non24 Sleep/wake cycle attend our meeting. Members were interested to learn more so Jason will schedule the speaker.

-PA State convention will be held November 11 through the 14th, 2021 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Harrisburg. Rooms will be $99 per night. That means we are the host chapter!
Let’s get some exciting ideas and plans for the hospitality suite! The hotel is near the train station so it has good accessibility .
