March Meeting Update
March 18 Meeting CANCELLED
The safety and wellbeing of our members and guests is paramount. As a result of COVID-19 concerns, and with respect to speaker’s time, our board has decided to cancel our professional development meeting on Wednesday, March, 18 . This was not an easy decision. For as long as we could, we had held out hope that the event would proceed as planned. However, it is clear that canceling the meeting is now the only responsible option. We are working to refund RSVPs through the Eventbrite system and will keep you posted about future meetings. Thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation.
