Coronavirus Monitoring - Event Cancellation

March 13, 2020: As school closures and travel restrictions have grown more numerous in light of the COVID-19 threat, the JSN has determined that it is unreasonable to continue with the three cohort gatherings scheduled for this spring.  

Effective immediately, the following cohort gatherings are cancelled:

Email notification has been sent to all registered participants. The JSN is absorbing all costs related to these events, with the exception of individual travel costs.

Regrettably, existing future events and our transition to the Ignatian Colleagues Gathering model prohibit the rescheduling of these events.  The JSN will seek means by which to communicate messages and share resources in an alternative fashion to the events.
