The NAACP San Diego Branch, along with other units in the Southeastern Region of the California-Hawaii State/State Area Conference, has decided in order to protect the integrity of our meetings, to require that all participants and guests in our Executive Committee and General Membership online Zoom meetings meet the following criteria:
Have a (paid or) free Zoom account and log in to it before attending
Use a current recognizable photo of their face as the profile picture
Use their legal first and last names on their profile
Attendees who do not meet this criteria will not be permitted in the meeting.
Given the current crisis associated with COVID-19 pandemic we will not be meeting face to face, as we practice social distancing as mandated by the CDC. However, we will be working on having a virtual meeting next month.
First and foremost I hope that you and your family are staying physically and emotionally well during these unprecedented times. In such uncertain times, it is difficult yet necessary to keep looking forward to the year ahead of us. The Office of the President has continued to work with our partners and community to share information and resources with those in need. We appreciate the continued memberships and donations, and we continue to purchase luggage for our foster youth. We very much look forward to reaching our goal of 100 before the deadline of May 7, 2020.
Speaking of deadlines, May 1st is the new deadline for your membership to be current if you want to run in the Branch election in the fall. Please see the packet below for information on the valuable work you can do for Civil Rights should you be willing to serve the Branch in this way.
Francine Maxwell, President NAACP San Diego Branch
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be holding our April General Membership Meeting. However, please read the President’s full report and the committee reports and announcements in the interactive packet online or by viewing/downloading the entire packet. The President discusses the upcoming elections, the offices you might run for, the committees you might join, as well as a summary of how the Branch has addressed the NAACP’s six game-changers over the past six months.
We will make a decision regarding the May General Membership Meeting sometime during the month of April. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
