NOT JUST YET, PARDNER!
As we all know, the continued spread of the Delta Variant of COVID-19 is a big deal. Unfortunately, the ongoing situation related to COVID requires each of us to run a mental risk analysis before we set out to do practically anything in daily life. We know – it’s getting really old, but unfortunately that’s just the world we live in now.
Over the last two weeks, our team gathered information and listened to feedback so we could make some important decisions before hitting the play button on our Connect & Share meeting. As you can imagine when you host a big event, once you press play it’s really hard and expensive to press stop.
Unfortunately, our excitement needs to take a back seat to safety. While we know our team needs to get together for camaraderie, team building and reconnecting around the mission of Block by Block, we’ve had to weigh the implications on the overall system if there was a positive case among our managers in attendance. It would be pretty devastating to our continuity of operations to have to quarantine that many managers.
Please know we’re not cancelling the meeting. We’re just not having it when we thought.
Please save the date for the week of March 7th, 2022 to join us in Houston (and Austin for customers!)
If you’re one of our fantastic managers, thanks for your patience and everything you do in taking care of your team! We’re asking that you also keep the originally planned week of November 1st flexible as we’re going to do some fun things virtually. (More to come on that at a later time!)
If you’re a customer, we hope to still see many of you in Tampa for the International Downtown Association conference in Oct!
