MANDATORY CHAPTER DIRECTOR TRAINING WEBINARS

In order to kick off the new year on a positive note for chapters, we have established a Training Webinar for each director/discipline position to ensure all directors are informed of their board role. Participation in a webinar for your board position is mandatory for anyone serving on a chapter board and takes place in November and December prior to the board member starting his/her role in January. If you did not participate in a mandatory call and need to schedule a one-on-one with the NEWH, Inc. staff, please call 800-593-6394.

stay tuned for the Mandatory Training Webinar schedule with 2018 board members coming in November 2017
