Meeting Dates 2020/2021
After closely monitoring developments related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak and assessing its current and potential impact, our scheduled meetings for the 2020/2021 year will be scheduled at the Union League club with virtual capability as backup.
The health and well-being of our members, employees, partners, and others who help us host these events is our top priority.
Many attendees at our events are health care professionals who are on the frontlines of caring for the public.
We will start the season with Dr. Margo Shoup's Presidential lecture and the 2019/2020 Business meeting on October 1, 2020.
