3/24/20 Update: In light of the current COVID-19 concerns and the directions from local and state leaders, we will be temporarily suspending our monthly Chapter meetings on the fourth Tuesdays of the month. We greatly value these times to gather for learning and support but the health and wellbeing of our chapter members and our community at large is our highest priority. We will keep you posted regarding the date of our next chapter meeting. Until then, take very good care and don't hesitate to reach out!

Monthly Meeting! - Temporarily Suspended due to COVID-19
