2020 Annual Report

Can’t believe it’s been another year! Please take the time to complete the Annual Report for 2020. We know it’s been quite the tough year (understatement of the year), but we still would like to know what happened– even if what happened was a complete pause due to the pandemic. This newly written annual report will be the foundation for all us to better collaborate with each other and for the development of new services. 

The annual report is due May 15, 2021. Please click the link below for the online report form (note- this year it is indeed possible to start and save your progress! Woohoo! This is not automatic so be sure to save before you quit a session)
