ANNOUNCEMENT/UPDATES: COVID-19 IMPACT ON CFA SOCIETY LOS ANGELES
Staff and member volunteers at CFA Society Los Angeles have been closely monitoring the circumstances involving the Covid-19 pandemic and have been taking all precautions necessary to ensure the safety of our members and community. As a membership association, we have long been committed to creating in-person opportunities for our members and community to connect and build relationships, but we also prioritize and value your safety and health. On March 10th, we decided to postpone or cancel all in-person events through June 15th. With the continued spread of Covid-19 in the Los Angeles area, we have postponed all in-person events indefinitely. We will continue to observe guidelines by local agencies and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to keep members, stakeholders and staff safe in light of the evolving situation.
In the meantime, as an organization, we are unwavering in our commitment to assist you with professional development and career resources, which we understand must be as readily available as ever. We have already been leveraging preexisting web-based partnerships and pursuing new vehicles to offer more webinars and online experiences so that we can continue to provide you with the thought leadership and interconnectivity that you've come to expect from CFA Society Los Angeles. As we work to adapt swiftly, we would love to hear from you as to how we can best support you during these difficult and uncertain times. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any and all suggestions would be greatly welcome and helpful.
We understand that this situation is evolving at a rapid pace and we plan to stay in communication with our membership via email as well as continue to provide updates on our website.
