NPAT Member Meeting

Thanks to everyone who attended!

NPAT hosted our first ever virtual member meeting. We replayed the presentations from the in-person event in Mount Vernon from Saturday November 14. We enjoyed interacting with the attendees at both the in-person and virtual meetings. We love hearing from our membership. Things have been a bit different this year and we have had a lot of firsts! We hope to see everyone in person next year.
