Dear Great Lakes Women’s Business Council Network,
As we follow the news and learn more about the Coronavirus outbreak, Great Lakes Women's Business Council recommends that everyone follow the CDC’s guidelines on preventing COVID-19’s spread in communities. With the recent recommendations from the CDC concerning COVID-19, execWE Leadership Vision 20/20 and the 36th Awards Celebration has been postponed.
Our execWE Leadership Vision 2020 that was scheduled for March 25, 2020, will be rescheduled. We are working with the Best Western Premier in Southfield for a future date. We will be in touch as soon as possible about a new date.
Our 36th Awards Celebration, which was to take place on the evening of April 23, 2020, will be postponed until further notice. We intend to reschedule the event for a time when we can be certain of the safety of the 550 attendees we expect or to restructure the event to utilize technology to achieve our goals. All award winners will still be recognized.
To ensure the safety for all, staff members will be conducting meetings and counseling sessions by conference call or Zoom. We thank you for your understanding as we work through this evolving situation. We encourage everyone to take the necessary precautions for the safety of our community, especially our most vulnerable community members. We will continue to strive to find a balance between normality and safety and look forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you for your understanding,
Michelle Richards, Executive Director
