Greetings AAACC Community, 
We miss you and continue to wish you health, wellness, and safety. As you may already know, the City and County of San Francisco has extended the ‘Shelter in Place’ ordinance through May 31st. Although our building remains closed, we are working diligently to create the place you call The Center - virtually. Please stay tuned for the launch of our virtual membership platform packed with resources, showcases, and more. 
In order to stay informed and up to date, please follow regular accounts from the city at  https://sf.gov/topics/coronavirus-covid-19 . Remember, we are in this together. Please be safe. Stay home. And, thank you for your continued support of The Center!

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2020!
