Looking Ahead with Hope

Looking Ahead with Hope

April 16, 2020

Dear Leadership Alabama members,

As we all continue to grasp today’s frightening and challenging situation, we are constantly reminded of how much we need and cherish one another. Our daily routines of the past are now valued more than ever as we isolate and distance ourselves from everyone in our lives, and one of the most difficult aspects of dealing with this insidious pandemic is not knowing when it will “end.”

However, with great anticipation and profound gratitude of when that time will come, Leadership Alabama is looking ahead with hope as we reschedule all of the recently postponed events and retreats, most notably our 30th Anniversary celebration (see below) originally planned for this June. Of course, we will continue to monitor and adhere to CDC guidelines and will make any needed changes to the schedule below as directed/advised.

As such, please know that this note is sent with the deepest concern and regard for you, your families, your organizations and our beloved state, and we pray that we will be together again soon.

With hope as we look to the future,
Kate & Ashley
