COVID-19 pandemic has altered payroll functions and processing. Although we are currently unable to gather in person for our monthly meetings, please know we are in this together!


Our events page lists tips and resources to better assist you through this change and you can always contact us directly.

Stay healthy, stay strong and always stay positive! We look forward to seeing all of our members as soon as it is safe to do so.

UPDATE -  We have postponed May's meeting


We value the safety of our members and our guests above anything else. In communication with our venue, adhering to County guidelines and ensuring a safe environment we will postpone the meeting for May 2020. However, we are in high hopes (with stay at home order clearance) that we will be able to proceed with our June Luncheon.

Please stay safe, respect and follow all Local & State recommendations to help prevent the spread of this virus. We will keep all updated with more information as it becomes available.

If you have any questions please contact us directly. We hope to see everyone strong and healthy in June or when we are able to resume safely. 


Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
