The safety and well-being of our members and our community are our top priorities. Due to the serious public health emergency created by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have decided to suspend all in-person chapter activities and registrations for future events until at least the beginning of April.  We will monitor the evolving situation and continue to provide updates as they become available through our website, Facebook, Instagram and email.

We thank you, our valued members for understanding this shared challenge. Take care of yourself, your family, and your loved ones. We look forward to seeing you once we are able to return to our normal lives.
