What We Are Doing:

SNHBA has been closely monitoring COVID-19 and its potential impact on members of the association. President Trump has declared a national emergency in response to the rapid spread of the coronavirus across the country. In light of this declaration, SNHBA staff will be working remotely.

While SNHBA’s office is temporarily closed, SNHBA staff will continue to be accessible to members as usual. Please continue to reach out to SNHBA staff as you would during standard business operations. The association is fully functioning and operational.

For our upcoming committee meetings, we will be providing conference call-in options so that we can stay in touch while maintaining CDC regulations.

In regard to upcoming events, we have decided to reschedule the following due to the CDC’s recommendation to postpone events with 50 or more people.

  • Bowling Night – Previously scheduled for 3/19
  • PWB Golden Knights Night – Previously scheduled for 3/21

We will continue monitoring COVID-19 and the CDC’s recommendations and reschedule these events when it is safe to do so.

We will also continue to monitor all updates on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep you informed via our Industry Notices.
