It's not always easy to know what kind of information to share in our monthly e-News. We try to include different industries, stories or applications that you might find educational or interesting. This month, surrounded by news dominated by COVID-19, it seemed more difficult than usual. We want to let you know we are in this together. We are doing our best to remain flexible and available. And we are here to support you in any way we can.

In this month's edition, we hope we are able to give you some normalcy, including a tidbit or two on the multitude of ways we support our clients. And for the kiddos (and adults) looking for a fun learning resource during social distancing, we covered that, too.  

So read on and stay safe.
