Monthly Report – March 2021

A Note from our CEO

One year ago, almost to the day, we decided to move our EDC board meeting online and announced to our team members that we would be closing the office for a few weeks. We decided to cancel all in-person meetings and events as well. Little did any of us know then how the next 12 months would unfold. The past year has been difficult on everyone in immeasurable ways.
