09/19/21: IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING IN-PERSON EVENTS & THE PANDEMIC


The spread of the Delta Variant has caused us to pause in our resumption of in-person activities. We will continue to conduct those in-person events we resumed in August and September, but will hold off those which had been scheduled for October and November. We will evaluate matters in December to determine when it is prudent to resume the other activities.
