MEETING INFORMATION for the following groups whose meetings are temporarily closed and for revived physical meetings:. Note that some of the meetings have re-opened, some as hybrid, and some as concurrent physical/Zoom.

Message from the District Rep (5/24/2021):
Meetings that are listed as Zoom or electronic as of now don't need to re-register when and if they go back to a physical location because they were not electronic to begin with. If a meeting becomes a hybrid meeting they do not need to report that information to WSO. Currently, WSO is not opposed to hybrid meetings. If a meeting started as Zoom/electronic, they can now select an area to be represented. More will be revealed on how that will work.
