Throughout the pandemic, the Society has balanced customer service expectations with employee safety to mitigate any potential spread within the organization. We have had 50% of our workforce working from home since April. With the new measures, the remainder of our employees will now be working remotely.
We will continue to answer the phones, respond to emails, ship products, process awards, and be available to support member inquiries. Effective Monday, December 14 shipments will only be sent on Mondays and Thursdays. Curbside pickup will remain available by appointment only (minimum 24 hours’ notice will be required).
