Our advisory board banquet will be Thursday, September 23rd, at 6:00 PM. Our format will be adjusted slightly due to COVID protocols. Instead of having all participants gather in our commons we are setting up a schedule to serve all board members throughout the evening and having them all return to their individual meetings. Mike Quaranta and I will go to each meeting and give C9 updates.
