On behalf of the Executive Team, due to the escalating events related to COVID-19, we will be postponing the Golf and Gala event for May. We currently do not have a reschedule date however we will work with that committee on future plans and options. We will reach back out to our membership once we have a new date identified for the later part of the year. Thank you for your continued support and what you all are doing for our HIT community.
