As my chapter presidency came to an end on June 30, 2020, it was not at all how I had imagined it would end after such a successful start in 2019. I was looking forward to a great spring with chapter meetings held at our new venue in Addison, shaking hands, and seeing each of you in person. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic forcing us to work remotely and social distance, our chapterhad to not only cancel the April meeting but for May and June we had virtual meetings from our homes.

After careful consideration and the full support of the Dallas CSI Board I am canceling all Dallas CSI Chapter events through the end of June. This is due to concerns of the health and well being of our CSI Dallas Chapter members and guests from the recent impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on our communities in the Dallas area. Our two main events each month are the Tech Lunch and Chapter Meetings where the attendance is 20+ and food is served at both venues.
