Out of an abundance of caution, the WICT NY Executive Board regrets to inform you we have postponed the Seraphina Awards Luncheon, originally scheduled for June 10. Due to the challenges our community is facing with COVID-19, and per the guidance of our state and local authorities, we are prioritizing the safety and health of our professional community by delaying the event. We will continue to update our WICT NY contacts, sponsors and members as events progress.
If you took the time and care to nominate your colleagues for the Seraphina Awards — thank you. We will continue to review the applications and they will remain open for the time being. We hope to update you all shortly with the award winners and revised luncheon date.
As WICT members we are CATALYSTS for change, we are FEARLESS and always INSPIRING others. We know that in addition to caring for yourselves during this challenging time, you are caring for your colleagues, partners, children and parents and we wish all of you continued safety and good health.
If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Tisdale at email@example.com.
