During these extraordinary times, we are facing an unprecedented challenge with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We place a premium on the health and well-being of our membership, departments, board members, and the community.
Due to concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone our spring educational conference at this time. More details in the rescheduling of the event will be forthcoming after the board has had some time to discuss and decide what is in the best interest for the organization.
