Message from the President Regarding Hurricane Florence

As we begin our preparations for the Fall meeting in Wilmington, our thoughts are with those who are also preparing for Hurricane Florence. Our livelihoods and location make our community particularly vulnerable to these storms. To all who will be affected: be safe, take care, evacuate if needed. And please keep in touch through social media. Let us know you’re OK.
