2020 Annual Golf Tournament Update
Chapter Postpones Annual Golf Tournament
After careful consideration from the CoreNet Leadership and Special Event Committee, a decision was made to postpone our Annual Golf Tournament originally scheduled for June 15. We have reserved a new date at Sequoyah Country Club, September 28, 2020, in hopes that at that time we can safely gather in some capacity.
Our Chapter continues to endeavor to bring value and community to our membership via all available means and are working diligently to reorganize and reschedule events. While we so greatly value being together and honoring our traditions we continue our commitment, first and foremost, to respect your well-being and to the health of our community as we make these decisions.
CoreNet Membership Survey Update
In Q1 of 2020, pre-COVID, the Chapter surveyed our members to better understand our membership demographics and priorities. The data is helpful in shaping our chapter's programing, activities, and priorities in the year ahead.
