I wanted to thank you all for your support for our staff and each other during these tumultuous times. COVID-19 has led to unprecedented changes across society and, as I write this from my (virtual) office, my kids are attending online classes in the next room. I know many of you are in the same situation and our thoughts are with you and your families.
Our first priority has been and always will be the health and safety of everyone in the EEBA community and, as such, staff is working remotely and we have postponed all in-person regional training events for the foreseeable future and will be transitioning to online events, e-learning and webinars. While we are hopeful that our Summit in Denver on September 29th will allow us to get together, we are already planning contingencies to make this a virtual event should the need arise.
As society moves online to deal with this pandemic, our intention is for EEBA to move from in-person education to online market transformation, while offering a digital place where we can continue to meet and foster our community.
If you have an idea for a topic or a session that you would like to present or just want to hear a friendly voice, I hope you’ll reach out soon.
