As you are aware, the recent developments on the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) have forced nations, municipalities, and organizations to rethink decisions on gatherings involving large numbers of people. While the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) is providing ongoing, updated information, the situation is so dynamic that each day brings a new development.
The Annual Business Meeting & Luncheon is one of our most cherished traditions. With women across multiple generations traveling by every mode of transportation to reconnect with fellow GHS alumnae, we are compelled to take the highest precaution for the health and welfare of our alumnae body. Therefore, it is necessary to postpone the 131st Annual Business Meeting & Luncheon on April 18, 2020, at the City Avenue Hilton in Philadelphia.
Stay tuned for announcements of plans under development for the Annual Business Meeting, which will be hosted in some form later this year, and updates on the rescheduled Annual Luncheon.
