In our March 23 webinar, we explored the possibilities for 2021 (and maybe beyond!) looking at important factors to consider when deciding on how to conduct future events. Should chapters plan on in-person events and meetings this year? Can chapters provide a safe experience and will members be ready? Is a hybrid model a viable option?
