Since Covid-19 we have been forced to avoid in-person meetings. We have learned a lot about this virtual world and we have realized a few silver linings. All of our forums have been virtualized into one virtual investor forum during this pandemic. We have investors joining us from throughout the US, Africa, Europe. India, and many other areas.
We do miss seeing each of our members in the chapters and we look forward to starting up our live forums again as soon as possible. However, due to the success we've realized with our virtual forums, we will continue with the virtual forum as the final forum of our SoCal roadshow.
