NNLM PSR Membership Update & Member Staff News

Posted by on December 17th, 2020 Posted in: Membership

We would like to provide you a year-end update of membership changes in the Pacific Southwest Region. The COVID-19 pandemic presented real challenges to outreach activities, particularly in-person activities such as site visits, conferences and exhibits.  In response to stay at home orders brought on by the pandemic, we have shifted our focus on digital platforms to ensure that we continue to build diverse and inclusive member communities.  Twenty-six new members have joined the network. Please join us in welcoming our new network members!
