Meeting Update (COVID-19 Restrictions)
Like all Texas cities, Covid-19 growth in Austin is exploding. The health department calls the growth curve a “hockey stick.” The city and county stay-home orders have been extended through August 15, including language opposing group meetings.
In consultation with SDA leadership, the board and annual meetings on July 11 will occur in a virtual format such as Zoom. Details will follow. The next in-person meeting is scheduled for October 31 in the Woodlands, followed by a rescheduled Austin event March 5-6.
We are aware that this is the time for collegiality and comradery, but the health risks are too great to do it in person. It is our sincere hope that you and your family are healthy and that your business is recovering.
Craig Campbell, SDA President
Danny Bahlman, SDA 1st Vice President
Business as Usual (Sort of)
