Register here to join us. This is the second follow up session where the May 10 JCore presentation on JCUA starting a 501(c)4 sibling organization will be re-screened. There will then be time for continued discussion and questions. This session will be in person at SketchPad (4411 N. Ravenswood Ave.). There is a step to get into the SketchPad building, with the option of putting a portable ramp outside to access the step. There is an elevator to the third floor, or a set of stairs. There is a single-occupant bathroom in the space. We will hold the screening in SketchPad’s open space with the windows open for increased air circulation. We ask that everyone remain masked during the session. If you attended the May 10 session but want to have further discussion with other JCUA members about the proposal and/or have questions for staff or members, feel free to join around 6:40 pm as we’ll spend the first ~40 min rescreening the presentation from the May 10 meeting for those who weren’t able to attend.
