CANCELLED - Economic Forecast Chamber Luncheon
Due to the inclement weather, we have decided to cancel our February luncheon and Economic Forecast scheduled for this Wednesday, February 13th! Not only are we concerned about your safety, but our primary focus is to support you in your business, and we feel like the greatest support we can give you at this time, is to give you just that. . . a little extra time. Time that we hope you will be able to use to get caught up on some of the work you might have missed due to the weather.
We know you were looking forward to hearing our speakers. We will reschedule both Pat Hulcey and Bill Riley in the near future. If you have registered and pre-paid for the luncheon, we are happy to transfer your registration to the March (or future) luncheon or refund your money. Please let us know how you would like to proceed.
Thank you for understanding and stay safe out there!
