First and foremost, I hope everyone is safe and healthy during this challenging and stressful time. A global pandemic is not something I ever thought would be the focus of our lives, and yet, here we are. As an association, some of our plans have changed and may change again, but I will keep you informed every step of the way until we can meet face-to-face, which I hope will be soon.
You all should have received the eBlast reminder about the CWA Job Board, available on the website. The intent of the Job Board is to connect those hiring with those seeking since many people have been displaced as a result of the pandemic. The CWA was the first to offer this to its membership and many others have now followed suit. I urge you all to take a look at the Job Board and post any openings available in your organization as well as view the information of those seeking employment. If we all stay committed to helping each other, this can work!
Once I realized the social distancing mandates, in North Carolina and beyond, were going to stay in place for quite a while, the Board and I had to make the difficult decision to postpone our 15th Annual Charity Golf Tournament in Pinehurst until May 2021. This was not a decision we wanted to make, and we thoughtfully considered every available option before ultimately deciding to postpone for an entire year. Just know that when we do meet in Pinehurst, it will be the biggest and best tournament we have ever hosted so you will not want to miss out.
The September Educational Event on September 17 at the Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte is still on! Details to follow shortly so be on the lookout. If you are not receiving our eBlasts and wish to get on the distribution list, simply join the association via the Membership tab on the website. There is no cost to join!
Again, I hope you all are doing well and I look forward to seeing you in September, if not before. Stay safe.
