In light of the evolving health situation in the United States, and in an effort to follow the recommendation of federal, state and local government to minimize large group meetings over the next 30 days, all meetings and events will either be re-scheduled or conducted electronically. More information will be forthcoming. We are committed to providing value for your membership in these unique times and appreciate your flexibility. If there is anything we can do to support you, or if you have any questions, please let us know.
