Our meeting location is the The North Chevy Chase Christian Church and requires that:

  • All visitors be fully vaccinated
  • People inside the building will be required to wear masks.
  • We will not have any shared food or refreshments

Show Table

  • Doors open at 6:30 PM and members are invited to start arriving and setting up any plants they have for the show table.
  • Entries for the Show Table should be placed in the appropriate category on the show table by 7:15 PM.
  • Show table judges will be selected and judging will begin between 7:15 and 7:30 PM.
  • The NCOS business meeting will start at 8:00 PM and the speaker’s presentation will start after the business meeting concludes (usually 15-20 min). Show Table results are announced after the speaker’s presentation concludes and members depart the meeting by 10:00 PM.

Attending Virtually:

The Meeting will open with the opportunity for members to share what they have blooming and socialize virtually with each other.

  • Once the speaker starts, all virtual members will be muted.
  • Questions should be logged in the chat menu during this time and will be relayed via the virtual facilitator.
