With the growing concern over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the Commonwealth, ABC Massachusetts has made the decision to postpone all programs and events through April 30. This will include the Meet the Generals and Annual Building Our Future Scholarship Hockey Challenge. As we move through this evolving crisis we will continue to evaluate future programs and events as well. In conjunction with ABC National, we are looking to provide additional on-line content. Watch for additional information on this.
Additionally, ABC staff will primarily be working remotely and will be available during regular business hours. We will be re-valuating this status on a weekly basis. We will do our best to continue to meet member needs. During this time, since the office will not be regularly staffed, we ask members to reach us via email or phone rather than in-person at the ABC office. All ABC/GCI staff have remote access to their email, and we recommend this as the most efficient means of communication. Voicemails left at ABC are accessible by staff via email as well. Staff contact information, including cell phones, is listed below.
