Message from the Chair

To say COVID-19 has presented all of us with many challenges is an understatement. Whenever change is thrust upon us, however, we always find positive outcomes.

While I hope that we can gather again in person in the not-too-distant future, we will adjust so we also can retain this benefit of expanded member participation.
