Sadly, as we continue to navigate the ebb and flow of the COVID pandemic, we are seeing a rise in cases across North Texas; our hospitals are filling with COVID patients, and we need to do our part to keep our staff and members healthy.
Despite our continued desire to gather in-person for MetroTex events, MetroTex is putting your health and safety first and postponing in-person events until we believe the risks are lowered. Just as Texas REALTORS® has had to make the difficult decision to cancel their in-person conference, our decision to postpone in-person events is not one that MetroTex takes lightly. We are disappointed, as much as each of you, and hope that as we pull together, grace will be extended to those that have the responsibility to make these tough calls on behalf of our 25,000+ members and staff.
Throughout 2020, we were able to continue to provide our members with top-notch service, and we’ll continue to do so now. Please take advantage of the vast amount of online classes, webinars, and virtual networking opportunities as we navigate through this next phase of the pandemic. Our service centers do remain open, with masks required for our staff and guests. We also continue to provide curbside service, as well as online ordering and delivery for those that wish to take advantage of those options.
MetroTex leadership is committed to continually monitoring the situation and to getting back to face-to-face meetings as soon as possible.
Wishing everyone good health!
Janet L Kane, CAE, CIPS, RCE, C2EX0
MetroTex Chief Executive Officer
