I hope that you're all staying safe, are taking care of yourselves and your loved ones as you're able, and following the shelter-in-place guidelines in your respective municipalities. It's been a few weeks since the last official newsletter and resource-focused emails went out.
Of course, I'd love to be in the middle of planning the next in-person events. It became clear in late February that the viral threat was growing exponentially and planning for the March event was officially canceled on March 3rd. I always love it when an event comes together with a room full of enthusiastic people who are there to network and learn. Now the health and safety of this community, the Bay Area, our country, and the world take precedence. This is a reminder to us all about how connected we are.
