DV Academy 2021 Spring Seminars will be Webinars Only!
The DV Academy Board, after lengthy discussion, has unanimously decided that the four Spring seminars of our 2020-2021 program will be webinars only on March 10, 2021; April 7, 2021; May 12, 2021; and June 9, 2021.  We hope to be able to meet in person in the Fall of 2021 for the start of our 2021-2022 program. We will probably still meet virtually in the Fall of 2021 for the start of our 2021-2022 program.  The board feels that for the safety of its membership, continuity in fees and delivery systems, webinars make the most sense until the virus contagion is more controlled either by treatments and/or vaccine. 

The board will continue to evaluate the virus situation as we look forward to the time when we will once again be able to meet as a large group.  In late Spring 2021, the board will meet to discuss & confirm our plans to meet in person at the LuLu Center, or, to continue to meet by webinar.  This decision will be made after considering the situation from all perspectives. Thank you for your understanding.

You will want to make sure your video is off, which can be done by clicking on the video camera icon, it will turn red.
