President's Message - On the Coronavirus


I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. We live in a every changing environment like we have never seen before, which has led your RTOERO Executive to make the following decisions.

                         The RPW workshop that was scheduled for April 4th                               has not been cancelled. It is going ahead as scheduled but will be held virtually instead of in-person. All registrants will receive an email with information about how to view this online session. 

Our Spring Luncheon which as scheduled for May 7th has been cancelled. We have to put the safety of all our members first and we do not want to expose anyone to this virus. The business from this luncheon will be on the agenda for our Fall Luncheon on Oct. 15th.

It is important to support each other during this trying time. Keep washing those hands, keep your social distance and hopefully we will all remain healthy.
