Out of a preponderance of caution, the Board of Directors has suspended chapter events scheduled for the month of March. While it was a difficult decision to make, we have made this decision to support ongoing efforts to minimize the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. We understand that this comes as disappointing news to our members, partners and guests. However, your well-being is our utmost concern.
Until new information about the mitigation and containment efforts of the COVID-19 virus are provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we will continue to provide information about suspended chapter events and activities to you through e-blasts and and social media postings.
Your understanding and patience is a deeply appreciated.
