Virtual Roundtable Meetings on the Third Thursday of Each Month at 7:00 PM

Yes, you read that right! We are having a District Roundtable! But what about District Connections? Well, the Covid-19 situation has thrown us some curveballs. In the present climate, your district feels it is best to have monthly roundtables to support the units during these uncertain times. When district meetings are allowed to happen in-person, we will likely return to District Connections once a quarter but might continue monthly District Roundtables in a virtual format in the off months.
