What teleworking means to you:

  • Staff will be available by email and — beginning Thursday, March 26 — by phone (816.833.3892) to answer questions, process membership reinstatements, and the like.
  • We WILL NOT fill orders for resources until after the shelter-in-place orders are lifted. Downloadable items are excluded.
  • NAP will continue to conduct webinars, 5th Tuesday Town Halls, and PRP renewal webinar modules as scheduled. (Watch your inbox for emails about upcoming webinars and the March 31 Town Hall.)
  • If you are taking the RP legacy exams, the 9-month deadline will be extended based on how long shelter-in-place orders are in effect. Details on the extension will be shared with you once the shelter-in-place orders are lifted.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but hope you share our commitment to doing everything possible to halt the spread of COVID-19.
