Annual NLGSF Testimonial Dinner POSTPONED
The NLG-SF Board and Dinner Committee has officially decided to postpone the 2020 NLG Annual Testimonial Dinner. We support measures to reduce transmission of the CoronaVirus and support the health of the most vulnerable to its impacts.
We intend to reschedule for later in the year and will do so once we have more information over the next several weeks and months. In the meantime, we are holding your tickets.
The journal with ads to celebrate our honorees will be printed closer to the time of the rescheduled dinner. In the meantime, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to place an ad but did not have time to do so previously.
Please take good care of yourselves and support efforts to reduce transmission of the virus. Here is a site with more information on how to do so.
