Next Chapter Meeting

Fall 2020 Annual Meeting

Meeting Virtually on Zoom
Saturday, September 26
10:00 – 11:30 am


The PNW Chapter has postponed our usual in-person meeting until 2021 because of COVID-related concerns. Instead our Fall meeting will be virtual.

When:  Saturday, September 26.  Main topic from 10:00-11:00, a break (with option to chat) from 11:00-11:10, and business meeting/volunteer recognition from 11:10 – 11:30.

Where: Online with a Zoom address and password sent to registrants before the meeting.

What: For the main topic of Workplace Locations and Ergonomics, we plan to do a virtual “tour” of a number of our workplaces. We invite registrants to send a photo (or photos) of your workplace and computer along with a brief description of your setup and its pros and cons to Sam Arnold-Boyd ( by September 19.

Sharing your workplace is not a requirement for attendees; in fact, we will probably have time for fewer than ten workplaces. Those who are willing to have their workplaces shared will send their photos to Sam, who will then create a slideshow with those photos. During the meeting, we will invite you to describe your workplace as the photos are shown. We’ll take time for brief discussions with each contributor. The goal is to share ideas for comfortable and convenient work environments and for good ergonomic practices.

The business meeting/volunteer recognition from 11:10-11:30 will be similar to the meeting that we usually hold after lunch during our Saturday conferences in Vancouver. It’s open to everyone. (The Board Meeting and a “Circle Check-in” will be held virtually on October 24.)

Who: Priority registration for PNW/ASI members and residents, August 16 – September 16. Registration open to all up to a maximum of 22 attendees, September 17 – September 25.

How: Visit this link to register with our Google form. Sam will confirm your registration. Prior to the meeting, Sam will send the Zoom link to everyone who has registered. Attendance is free for PNW/ASI members, $5.00 for non-chapter members who belong to ASI or sister organizations, and $10 for non-members. Find payment details on the registration form.
