Dear District Leaders,
Due to the evolving impact of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Board of Directors has made the following exceptions, effective immediately and until further notice:
All clubs in all Districts can meet entirely online, as needed.
Speech contests may be conducted online at the Area and Division levels.
Refer to the attached speech contest document for more information.
We understand the impact on club meetings and speech contests varies. As such, some clubs or speech contests may need to be conducted online, while others may continue in person. We encourage you to support the club officers in your District and your speech contest team in making the best decision for your members. The well-being of all members is top priority.

Work from Home Tools
As everyone is being driven home for safety from COVID-19, many of us are working from home for the first time and some of us now have our children surfing online with less supervision. SANS Technology Institute has put together some free resources to help everyone be better prepared for these new challenges.
We invite you to visit their site and review the information.
District 100 has no affiliation nor do we endorse SANS Institute. This is provided solely as an open resource for our members.
