WHAR has made the following decisions to provide for the health and well-being of our members, our staff and our overall community. Several factors helped to arrive at this decision, including the increasing number of calls being received from members with concerns. Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 through Thursday, April 30, 2020:
· All WHAR classes and events will be cancelled or postponed. This includes, but is not limited to, the YPN Professional Panel on March 25, our General Membership Meeting on March 27, and the weekly Kona Caravans. DCCA has notified all CE providers that as of this time they are not planning to extend the license renewal date and will look to online classes. Anyone who has paid for classes or events will be refunded.
· WHAR offices will be open for email and phone service only, no walk-in service. Should a member have a need (which could include the need to purchase store items or lockbox servicing), members will be asked to schedule an appointment with staff.
· All committee meetings will take place via tele-conference, including the WHAR Board of Directors meeting on March 25, 2020. Assistance will be provided to committee/board members if needed to provide a call-in number for meetings.
· The period of modified classes/events/meetings/walk-in service will be Monday, 3/16 through Thursday, April 30, 2020. Should the situation improve, full services may be reinstated sooner. We will reassess the situation and make further determinations as necessary on April 1, 2020.
Mahalo for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty
