March 12, 2020 POC Webinar

The unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has significantly affected meetings in every industry. As destinations work to contain the spread of the virus, it has led KEYPOCC leaders to cancel our March 12 meeting scheduled at the Alfred I. Dupont Hospital for Children in Wilmington.

Instead, our speakers graciously offered to provide their presentations via a webinar for us instead. Also, our friends at Whitehat Communications rebuilt our meeting - it's better, stronger and faster - as they had the technology - and our thanks - to do so. Thanks also to KEYPOCC Officers who quickly shifted gears from a face-to-face meeting to a webinar to provide this timely information to our members and the POCC Community in general.
