March 2020 Update

Connecting Online & Looking Forward

In light of international travel bans and the cancellation of upcoming conferences and events, we decided to send a brief update with some online resources, alternatives to in-person events, and conferences planned for later in the year.

Many events that had to be cancelled will transition to an online format, so keep an eye out for interesting online offerings coming up in the next few weeks. Please let us know if you have any online events to share with the community. We will do our best to circulate event round-ups like this on a regular basis in order to help us all stay connected and engaged.
