With this as our primary focus, the organization’s leadership has been meeting over the past few weeks to monitor the emerging and rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The leaders met today and decided to postpone the meeting until June 16-17, 2020, in our effort to keep everyone safe

We hope you will be able to join us for the June 16-17 event. If you are unable to attend and need to receive a refund please email and we will provide a full refund.
