Meeting Change Notice
After a discussion at a recent Board meeting, the decision was made to hold meetings on a quarterly, rather than monthly, basis for the year 2021. Please review the meeting dates under the 2021 Meeting Schedule. All of the meetings will be virtual. This decision will be reviewed in the latter part of 2021. Hopefully in 2022 we will be able to begin meeting again face to face.
