COVID-19 UPDATE – Virtual Events: Tuesday, April 14, 2020
We hope that each of you and your families continue to feel well and safe. Thank you to all of our community leaders, first responders and essential service providers for your bravery and for making a difference. The demonstration of such compassion and kindness from all corners of the world are truly inspiring. As are the stories of true leaders stepping up and making a difference. So many of those leaders here in Hampton Roads that are making an impact are CIVIC alumni and we are grateful to them for guiding the region through this pandemic.
Executive level leadership is so critically important, especially as we turn towards the pathway to recovery. This will not be an easy task, but with the connections within CIVIC I am confident our region will come out of this even stronger.
