A Note of Gratitude
In spite of the challenges triggered by COVID-19, a majority of NEHS chapters have been able to pay their annual affiliation fees; while NEHS, like most organizations, has realized a dramatic financial impact due to the pandemic, compared to 2019, 62.9% of affiliation fees were received this spring. Thank you! The extended due date for chapters needing to make the affiliation payment has been extended to September 15.
