Message from SMPS Atlanta : Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The COVID-19 situation in our city, region, and state continues to unfold. While the Atlanta board of directors has been contingency planning for the past few weeks around new developments, specific responses to recommended measures to slow the infection rate evolve on a daily basis. As of March 12, 2020 we are further adjusting our planned meetings, events, and gatherings. Please return to this post regularly, as any additional changes will be noted here as well as in individual event/meeting details.

At this time, we have the following updates to share:

 

Tickets to RESCHEDULED events will automatically transfer to the new date – there is no action required on your part, unless you prefer a refund. Tickets to CANCELED events have been refunded. Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate the situation. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] 

If you have ideas or resources to share that might benefit others as they expand their telecommuting strategies and alternatives to meeting in person, please connect with us on social media. We are in this together! Responding ethically and balancing safety and health concerns while continuing to educate and connect leaders in the building industry is SMPS Atlanta’s highest priority.

Other Recommended Measures for Volunteers & Programs

We strongly urge our amazing chapter volunteers and participants in the following programs to adjust the format of your gatherings to a virtual meeting or conference call:

  • Chapter Committee/Sub-Committee Meetings
  • New Member Ambassadors Program
  • Neighborhood Rock the Blocks
