Fourth Quarter 2020


Everybody is eager to see 2020 in the rearview mirror but as the CII team reflects on what we are most grateful for, talented and dedicated member volunteers top the list. It has been a tough year, but we have supported each other and persisted through this year’s unprecedented challenges.

We look forward to a safe return to in-person activities
and discovering what we can build together in 2021!
