To our Georgia family,
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be top of mind for many of you as it is for us. Keeping in line with the World Health Organization and local officials stressed importance of social distancing during this pandemic, we have chosen to postpone our annual Design and Honor Awards to mid-July. For those who have purchased tickets to our event please email Lynn Robinson for a refund or to move your ticket to the new, yet to be determined date.
As an organization supporting incredible people, our members and supporters are our top priority. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here for you. Updates will be shared frequently via our website and social media channels.
We would love to know what resonates with you all. What would you like to hear from your Georgia chapter? Best practices, business as usual?
Let us know by sending us an email.
We will continue to watch this situation closely and take guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local authorities.
