Membership Mixer / Board at the Bar

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and social-distancing concerns, we have decided to host a Virtual Membership Mixer in lieu of our traditional, in-person “Board at the Bar”. Although it saddens us not to host an in-person social event, we are hoping that more members are able to participate across the nation and internationally for our live, virtual event powered by Zoom Conferencing. Meet fellow members, volunteers, and staff. We will share some key updates and use breakout rooms so that you can meet other members based on shared interests. Open to PTs, PTAs, SPTs (you are not required to be an Academy member to attend).
