Branch Meetings

This year we are in a quandary about convening our branch meetings at the Goodwill Career Center. Given the necessity for keeping ourselves safe and healthy, the Board recommends we not gather in a physical location through the remainder of 2020 but to revisit the possibility of resuming in-person meetings in early 2021. However, we will continue to meet virtually and engage with one another via Zoom.

Joining the meeting from home gives you the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lunch you prepared while still being able to chat with “tablemates” from across the city. And the Board hopes more of you will be able to participate because neither weather, nor driving, nor parking will be an issue. If you are a working member, you will be able to pop in for an hour or so from the comfort of your office. We hope the result will be increased enthusiasm and commitment without straining resources and schedules.  So, reserve these dates and watch for specifics via email and the newsletter.
