Dear SLHTA Members,

Over the past few weeks, the unprecedented COVID-19 global crisis has challenged our citizens, our businesses, our members and also, the SLHTA as an organization like no other crisis in our 50+ year history. And with no end of the crisis in sight any time soon, the SLHTA remains entirely committed to do what it takes to support not only our members, but the country as a whole.
