At this time, we are unable to confirm 2021 meetings, due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are reports that the situation may improve by the end of the summer. If so, it could be possible to schedule meetings, but this is far from certain and will only be done in coordination with host locations that meetings can be held safely. In the best interest of our members, we will monitor the situation closely and if meetings can be scheduled, the details will be presented. Please stay safe.
