*** NO LOCAL CHAPTER MEETINGS ***
when P.E.O. gatherings are not to be held.
March 18, 2020
We are living in unique times and love is leading us in new and uncharted directions. We have already received the formal notice from the International Executive Board cancelling all state, provincial, and district conventions. Therefore, we will NOT be having our convention on May 1-2.
In addition, the latest message from International directs us to have no P.E.O. gatherings until at least May 10th. (click here for a full PDF copy). This reinforces the message that I sent out earlier in the week to cancel all remaining March and upcoming April chapter meetings.
I hope that you are all activating your phone chains, buddy networks, local chapter Facebook pages, etc. to keep in touch with your sisters. Now is a good time to explore the world of technology and try a ZOOM meeting with your chapter sisters or a Skype call to a housebound sister. If you need help setting this up, please let me know. Both are fairly simple set-ups. It's also a good time to join our "New Jersey P.E.O." closed Facebook page. Just search for us in groups on Facebook (remember to spell out New Jersey and put the periods with our letters). The page is updated daily and helps to keep us connected throughout the state.
It is also a good time to explore the many videos available at www.peointernational.org and at www.peoleadership.org. Since we can't hold meetings, why not have everyone watch the same video and then talk about it together via ZOOM? P.E.O.s are always resourceful. Now is the time to stretch those wings and let love lead us into new technological waters.
