Virtual meetings during the COVID-19 crisis to touch base across the region

In April and May, Ten at the Top held weekly TATT Chats with board members and partners, business and community leaders, and representatives from each county to give updates so we can stay connected even when we can’t meet in person. Throughout the fall, we’ll continue to hold TATT Chats a couple of times a month.
