    As part of this process, we are following government-recommended guidelines and protocols to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Upon entering our offices, members and visitors will be asked to complete a site access form. Members and visitors will also have their temperature taken with a digital thermometer. Access to our offices will only be granted dependent on the responses to the health-related questions on the form and a successful temperature check. We will also have hand sanitizer available at the check-in table along with free masks, if you don’t have one of your own. While wearing a mask is encouraged, it is not required. Please also remember to practice social or physical distancing guidelines by staying at least two meters (or six feet) away from other people. Your patience and cooperation during this time are of critical importance to the safety and security of our staff, our members and other visitors. Please be respectful to our staff and others while visiting our offices. Thank you for your understanding. Derrick Schulte Executive Secretary Treasurer
