Good morning ACE Members
I hope this finds you well and navigating these crazy times as best you can. A tweet came through my feed yesterday that was so on target, I thought I’d share it with you:
“You are not working from home; you are at your home during a crisis trying to work. I’ve heard this twice today. I think it’s an important distinction worth emphasizing”.
To help alleviate any financial stress COVID-19 may have brought to you, ACE will be forgiving dues for April, May, and June 2020.
How can we do this? Through prudent financial action from this, and previous boards, we have a savings account to address crises like this. The Board unanimously voted that this is the appropriate time to use some of it. Even as we take this action, we still have a $500,000 strike fund, five percent of operating reserves and additional funds to cover our pending lawsuit against CalPERS. In other words, we’re going to be ok.
On behalf of the ACE Executive Board,
