As we plan for the Silver Circle, please rest assured we are keeping a close eye on the ever-evolving COVID landscape. If safety dictates, we will delay the Silver Circle presentation to later this year and make a determination if it will be in person, or as we needed to do last year, hold a virtual event. For now, let’s be optimistic and push ahead with plans to celebrate in person on May 13th!
