BECOME THE BEST YOU CAN BE

__________________________________

APRIL 14th, 2020 UPDATE: With the unprecedented shutdown due to COVID-19, we have moved our typical in-person club meeting to an online format on ZOOM for the duration of social distancing mandates by the government and health authorities.

We are welcoming up to 5 MeetUp Members as guests of our club as of the April 16th, 2020.

In order to participate as a guest we will need to be able to send you a password specific invitation by email once you've RSVP'd.

Going forward we will increase the number of guests for these meetings based on ensuring the best functioning of the meetings and providing a great guest experience. We look forward to meeting many of you soon!

**PLEASE CHECK OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILES AND MEET UPS FOR UPDATES ON GUEST ATTENDANCE**.

We hope everyone is staying safe, and healthy during this time.
