March 2021

As the entire World was forced into the VIRTUAL world with the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020 going on, our chapter has adapted and strived to utilize all of the functions of ZOOM. We continue to hold Quarterly Board Meeting, Roundtables, Industry Related Webinars and Educational Courses through this VIRTUAL meeting platform. We are excited to continue to connect with the Banking Industry Professionals and provide as much resources as we can to assist them in their roles. We hope soon enough we will be back to meeting in person, but until then we hope to see everyone through our VIRTUAL events.
