Greetings! 

 
I hope this note finds you well and staying safe. We are super excited and looking forward to hosting our first all-virtual SOAR Conference via Zoom.  This year, the conference is titled, "People, Purpose, Passion" starting November 4th thru December 18th.  Don't be intimidated by the duration of days for the conference.  The team has broken the conference down into smaller, more manageable, time chunks over more days so we don't completely wear-you-out from Zoom fatigue.
