Congratulations to NEOC member, Tori Campbell, who received one of two OUSA President's Awards for 2020!
Tori joined the OUSA Board of Directors a year ago and jumped right to work. She has accomplished more as a Board member in one year, than many Board members do in a decade.
...she has overseen the Youth Mapping Program and spearheaded a significant revision of our Abuse and Misconduct Policy. But most impressively, she almost single-handedly brought to reality a long wished for online training program.
See the announcement on the OUSA site for the complete description of Tori's 2020 achievements.
...and note the Certificates of Appreciation awarded to NEOC members/friends Jon Campbell, Barb Bryant, and Ed Despard.
All very well deserved!
Look for Update and Trainings e-mails in your Junk/Spam folder.
The NEOC mailer has moved to a new hosting service, so you might need to re-train your spam filter.
Mark the NEOC e-mail as "not spam" and all should be well. (Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Bing, etc. all have slightly different ways of doing this. Search for a Help article.)
If that doesn't help, please contact the Webmaster.
