"I'm sorry to be writing you at this late date. In an effort to make the information available in a uniform manner, I have been asked by the CLSA leadership to hold off on any chapter presentations at this time. Carl C De Baca and I will be presenting the issues at the upcoming board of directors meeting for the directors to take back to the individual chapters. We will also be presenting a webinar shortly following. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause with your chapter meeting schedule."
