COVID-19 Updates

Update (7/19/2022):

The CCSM office is now open to the public. If you will be visiting us in person, we ask that you use your best judgment to protect yourself and others. Masking is highly recommended, but it is NOT required.

We are in the process of offering hybrid options to attend meetings. This means that all CCSM meetings can be attended either in person and/or online via Zoom. Please check each local council or subcommittee website page for up-to-date information on how to attend. As always, feel free to contact the CCSM office if you have any questions about upcoming meetings or events: 430-8300 or 1-877-207-5073.

You can still access any COVID-19 resources on our website by clicking the links on the right side of this page.

We will continue to take precautions as necessary and you can feel free to contact us with any questions.

~Thank you
