Chapter Requests

The Chapter Request page was created on January 18, 2007 to serve as a central location for access to the latest from the NSS chapters.  Additional Requests will be posted as they are submitted. Also if you have a comment or help to post for a particular item below send the comment/help [include item # and listing] to the email below. Online comments page coming soon.

Note: All requests are presently being kept on this list so that we can see what we have accomplished, what we have partially accomplished and what we still need to work on

NSS Calendar should actually have 3 calendars running concurrently, with tabs to get to

the 3 different types of calendars. We should have a National and International SPACE

Calendar, a National and International NSS calendar to include Regional Conferences

and NSS events.  Finally we need a Chapters Calendar where chapters can list their

own events, not meetings, unless they plan on having a big event at a meeting.

 

 

 Go Ahead and assign a nearest chapter to every undesignated NSS member
