Chair Deborah Mann and her committee have diligently been considering options and contingencies for the SAC 2020, given the times in which we find ourselves. They made the tough, but appropriate, decision that our chapter's major 50th birthday celebration will be postponed from November 2020 until Fall 2021. In the meantime, alternative ways to honor the 2020-2021 ARCS Scholars, as well as raise operational and scholar award funds which are key elements of the SAC, are being evaluated and developed. The stellar SAC 2020 committee, which will remain in place for SAC 2021 includes: Ellie Bingham, Chris Simpson Brent, Donna Miller Casey, Barbara Glynn, Leah Hearst, Katy Hope, Gretchen Kimball, Jill Kramer, Kendra Kramlich, Linda Millard, Nancy Mueller, Elaine Oldham, Susan Pelosi, Merrill Randol, Libby Tyree-Taylor, Jo Whitehouse, and Barbara Wolfe, with support provided by Deborah Greenwood. In the meantime, many on the committee have volunteered to help with alternative fund raising plans for 2020-21.
