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 (mpmeuth@tamu.edu) 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.
