As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, the NEWEA Office is taking important steps to maintain the health and safety of our office and communities. Please read the notices below to remain up to date on how this is impacting the NEWEA office and our upcoming events.
The NEWEA Office will be temporarily closed, and NEWEA staff will be working from home. This decision was made in accordance with current best practices and recommendations to practice social distancing, which promotes physical space between people and stops or slows the spread of the virus.
We will continue to provide support and monitor the situation as it evolves. We will make updates available as we receive them on our website and social media channels, as well as via email.
While we are working from home, NEWEA’s staff can be best reached via email. NEWEA email addresses, as well as links to our social profiles, can be found on our Contact Us page.
