Last week we heeded the Governor’s call for non-essential services to work remotely to minimize exposure for employees, partners, and our communities’ most vulnerable. We’ve been working remotely for a week now, and I cannot adequately express how proud I am of the CMAP team’s willingness to jump in to help wherever and whenever needed. I am meeting with my leadership team daily to ensure our important work across the region continues to the best of our ability.
We’ve also made the decision to cancel March Committee meetings as we ramp up our virtual conferencing capabilities, which we hope to roll out for Committee meetings scheduled in April. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out directly to Committee liaisons or leave a message at (312) 454-0400. We are checking messages several times a day and will get back to you as quickly as we can.
I know we are all facing similar challenges in our organizations and communities. As I have with my staff, I encourage you to reach out to your peers, your neighbors, check in on one another, and share what’s working and what’s not. There will no doubt be more challenges ahead, but together as a region, we can tackle them head on.
