News from NSAC LRPC: PLEASE READ!
We received the following letter from the NSAC Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) member Patricia Horne and were asked to share it with our members.
Dear NSAC Members and Auxiliaries,
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we, your Long-Range Planning Committee (LRPC), offer you our 2020 Long Range Strategic Plan. We know you have been hearing about “The Plan” for several months now through the NSAC Newsletter and Monthly Mailings. We now are able to offer this exciting Plan for you to download.
The LRPC believes this Plan is the road map to the NSAC being a vibrant, inclusive, and harmonious community of Spiritualists, and a leading source on Modern Spiritualism. We believe this Strategic Plan is what the members of the NSAC asked us for in our 2019 Convention small-group activity and the follow-up surveys to those not able to attend the convention.
In this 2 MB download we share the vision with you. Also, we have planned 3 Zoom sessions, the first on Thursday, November 12 at 8 PM EST (5 PM PT), and two on Saturday, November 14 at 12 PM EST (9 AM PT) & 4 PM EST (1 PM PT). These Zoom meetings will last for 60-90 minutes each for your feedback, questions and answers, and your comments and thoughts.
Because we understand this is an extensive document, we have created a “road map” to help you navigate the Plan.

Join us this Sunday for an online service. We have the capacity for 100 visitors to join us...first come first serve. You can join with a pc, laptop, smart phone, or call in for audio participation.
Due to what they call "Zoom Bombing" please email me at for the meeting number. I will add you to the contact list and you will get personal invitations to the services. Every week there will be a new MEETING NUMBER and PASSWORD. It will be in your personal invitation. We can no longer publish the meeting number due to increased incidents of hacking and braking up of Zoom meetings, so please email me and I will send it to you. ROBIN HODSON will be the speaker this Sunday.
It is more important than ever to keep contact with each other and to keep our faith and belief strong! It was a great success last week! We have people from all over the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, and Switzerland online and so our service is international!
