NEACE Membership Application 20-21

Next Meeting:

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the rise in cases lately, I feel it would be best for everyone to cancel this month’s meeting scheduled September 9th, 2020.  It was to be hosted by City of Jacksonville Beach and they, as well as everyone involved, feel more comfortable not having an in-person meeting at this time.  We will be re-evaluating the situation as time progresses.  I hope you all stay safe and healthy.  Please check back for updates.
