All Meetings Postponed until April

As of Tuesday, March 17th 2020, all in-person Crosswinds Club meetings are postponed until April 2nd 2020.
The option for Crosswinds to utilize a video/online meeting format has already been approved at the District Level and is being tested among Area Directors.
This decision should come to no surprise following Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds' issuance of a State of Public Health Disaster Emergency that just went into effect at noon today. As of now, this will last through March 31st.
As we know, it takes significant steps to require social distancing and limit community spread of COVID-19. Planned large gatherings and events must be canceled or postponed until the public health disaster is over.
More information to follow!
