March 20, 2020 - Vol 2, Issue 3
2020 will be a year to remember. The situation with COVID-19 and seen the 'Virus Outbreak' banners in the news reminds me of the 'zombie' movies...The virus outbreak is a reality now, not just seen on movies. The struggle is real.

You might think that an event newsletter might not be something worth look at now, HOWEVER, there are various types of events. The focus of this newsletter will be on webinars, digital events, and podcasts. All these are also events to consider and I will have more updates on these on the April newsletter.

Remember, this might be a chance for you to spend more time learning online. The learning should be a continuous process.

NOTE: If you sign-up to any event, please visit their website and verify the status of the event. Many events will get cancel.
2020 será un año para recordar. La situación con COVID-19 me recuerda a las peliculas de 'zombies.' Y pensar que una pandemia es la realidad ahora y no solo algo de película, me recuerda la lucha de cada día para sobrevivir.

Pensarás talvez que este boletín de eventos ya no es necesario, SIN EMBARGO, existen various tipos de eventos incluyendo eventos digitales, webinars y podcast. En abril tendré más información sobre este tipo de eventos.

Hay que recordar que la situación en la que estamos viviendo talvez sea una oportunidad para aprender en línea. El aprendizaje es un proceso continuo para seguir creciendo.

NOTA: Si usted planeaba asistir a algún evento, debe visitar el sitio web del evento para informarse de la situación. Muchos eventos serán cancelados.
Take care everyone,
