We will still need to hold elections for the 2021 Officers and Board of Directors before the end of June.  We will be doing this electronically.  Please keep an eye out for the ballot.

In the meantime, the Virginia Chamber has compiled a valuable Coronavirus Resource Guide and the Virginia Division of Public Health is providing the latest news regarding the situation, along with advice for reducing risks.
