The safety of our members and our community remains our highest priority.

For that reason the Officers of the Board of Directors and I are cancelling all in-person committee meetings and service events effective immediately, until further notice.

If committees still want to meet virtually, we will offer conference calling information. Please reach out to me.

This is an unprecedented time for our country, state, county and our organization. We appreciate everyone’s continued support. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks as always.

In light of recent advancements around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Officers of the Board and I have decided to cancel our first General Membership Meeting on 3/24/2020.

The safety of our members is our first and highest priority.

The decision to cancel was difficult and not taken lightly, and will communicate important information to members via email. So please continue to check your TB Weekly every Thursday.

Additionally, to that end, the co-chairs of each of the committees are empowered to make their own decisions regarding their respective committee meetings.

At this time the Leadership & Development Session on 4/4/2020 is on as scheduled. We will send any updates via email if this changes.

If anyone has questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly (vbhatt22@gmail.com).

Thanks for understanding.
