News and Events
Once a year, the PSN hosts a business meeting for 15-30 minutes via teleconference, at a convenient time for its members. This meeting is a chance for members to be briefed about the current news and events in the PSN, to volunteer for PSN related activities and to recommend topics for future CSHP education events.
