As an organization whose very purpose is to provide a forum for in-person networking, we have been monitoring the Coronovirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Our approach is to follow the advice of the medical experts of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health authorities to provide a safe and healthy environment for our event attendees.
As such, we are postponing all scheduled events through mid-May:
Growth Roundtable - (will be rescheduled) at the Newport Beach Civic Center
NextGen Spin Class - (will be rescheduled) at Freedom Ride
Goathill Tavern - (will be rescheduled) at Goathill
Women's Speaker Series - (will be rescheduled) at Center Club
We are cancelling the following, regularly-occurring events through Mid-May:
The March and April New Member Breakfasts at the Center Club are cancelled
The April and May NextGen Breakfasts at Matisse Bistro are cancelled
The April 30th Launch POD Breakfast at the Center Club is cancelled
The May 7th Women's Lunch at the Capital Grille is cancelled
The Awards Gala scheduled for May 14th at the Irvine Marriott has not been rescheduled yet, but we are in discussions with the hotel to postpone that event.
This human health situation is dynamic and fluid and calls for flexibility, prudence and care. We'll be in touch as new information comes in that will enable us to reschedule these events.
I encourage all of you to become familiar with the CDC's website on COVID-19.
