A few things to note about this calendar.
· Events added to this calendar are NOT automatically approved as advanced or basic training opportunities. You MUST get local chapter approval for training hours before attending.
· This is obviously not an exhaustive calendar of all the incredible online opportunities happening right now. Your chapter training directors have been made aware of the calendar and will be adding to it shortly. Please email Mary Pearl (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have something you’d like to add to the calendar
· Each event should have an Organizer listed as a TMN chapter or organization. Please refer questions about the specific events to those organizers, not the TMN state office.
We hope this helps with our TMN volunteers ability to maintain connection and educational engagement during this period of shutdown.

AT: Chapter Program “Dark Sky” presented by Debbie Moran and Steve Goldberg.
February 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
Deborah Moran is the 2017 recipient of the International Dark-Sky Association’s Hoag-Robinson Award for the education of government officials about outdoor lighting issues. In 2010, her Woodside neighborhood became the first within Houston city limits allowed to install low glare fully shielded decorative streetlights. Now three surrounding neighborhoods have investigated using similar lighting. For the past three years she has had concerns about the choice of high glare white LED street lights in Houston and hopes that the Houston area will join other communities in moving to warm or soft white LEDs at 3000K and below which are recommended by the American Medical Association for their reduced glare and reduced disruption of day/night circadian function which can interfere with sleep and cause a host of health problems. Houston is now an outlier in ignoring these concerns among major cities in the US and Texas.
