Chapter News & Events
The Intown Atlanta startup committee has met multiple times since June. Most of the required steps for full approval as a chapter of GNPS have been completed. We expect to be incorporated in the next month or so, which will be the final step before being eligible for full chapter status. We understand that many local members are excited about having activities, and currently we hope to have some events in the fall. Meanwhile, we encourage all members in the area to affiliate with the existing or forming chapter that best serves their needs. In particular, if you live inside the perimeter of Atlanta, you should consider the Intown Chapter or the North Metro Chapter. Affiliating with a chapter will ensure that you get notices about upcoming events. GNPS members are always welcome at the activities of other chapters, aside from voting on chapter matters, so there is no way that you can join the wrong chapter.
If you are in the Intown Atlanta area and are interested in joining a new GNPS chapter, please register to join us for a virtual Intown Atlanta chapter interest meeting on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at7:00 PM. Once you register you will receive the instructions for joining the event.
What we’ll be focusing on during the meeting:
- Meeting other chapter area members
- Reviewing the chapter quick start guide
- Choosing the startup committee
- Discussing the name of the chapter
- Discussing potential meeting locations
- and more!
We look forward to “seeing” you there!
