It is with sadness that we have to cancel not only the 1st Quarter meeting, but also the 2020 ABANA conference. ABANA is actively working to get refunds and the like returned to those who purchased tickets in advance. Please have patience with them.
In the mean time, reach out and talk with each other. People will tend to get a little stir crazy in a time like this, and that does not help anyone. Should anyone wish to talk during these hectic and crazy times, my phone is available. Stay safe everyone, and make some awesome stuff!
The scholarship fund is doing very well, and to show appreciation, we have opened the alloted scholarship amount for the year to $4,000 again. This means more opportunities for you all to take that class you want to take. The rules for the scholarships have also changed slightly, so if there are any questions, do not hesitate to ask. As soon as the amendments are finalized, they will be posted on the site.
2 of the 4 scholarships have so far been claimed for this year. In light of the shutdown, scholarship recipients will be allowed to hold their scholarship until things open back up. Do not let the shutdown keep you from applying!
