Dear EAC Members and Friends.
 
I am sorry to announce that our March 19 workshop has been canceled. Although the size of the event was within the range approved by health officials, the increased spread of the Coronavirus has continued to raise challenges, concerns and risks for all of us.
 
If all goes well, we will try to reschedule the event later in the year. Meanwhile, we will refund all monies paid in the next few days. If you have any questions, please contact Faith Barnese at (714) 794-4253.
 
We will keep you informed regarding the status of future events and remain hopeful that we can all get back to normal sooner rather than later. Please take care of yourselves, follow all the guidelines, and do your best to remain healthy until we meet again.
