We know this is a challenging time for many and an unprecedented time for us all. Our number one priority remains the safety and well-being of our members. As we all know, COVID-19 has us taking extra precautions in an effort to curb the onset of cases. In line with that objective, the board has voted to cancel all current events including our next chapter meeting scheduled for April 7th. We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you informed about our meeting in May.   

In the interim, we encourage our members to log onto Community Connections and APEX Campus to update your information and to sign up for a few courses.  And don’t forget to read a professional book or two in the upcoming weeks.  

Stay safe and healthy and we hope to see you all soon!
