A Letter from the President:


I hope this message finds you, your family, and your team members safe and healthy after the emotionally charged weeks that carried us through March and into April. In spite of everything that seemed to go wrong in the world, I was inspired to see the entire business community mobilize, adjust and adapt to keep moving forward in the uncertainty and chaos. It gives me tremendous hope about what is possible when we work together, even in the most dire of circumstances.

We look forward to serving our community during the coming weeks and months. We know there is uncertainty. We are here for those who have lost their jobs and those who need extra resources to meet increased demands in the workplace. Both are happening at the same time. Please know our door – proverbial if not actual – is always open. We are here to help you in any way we can.

Be well,

Laura Piel
