The DDKS Annual Membership Meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday August 15, 2020. Consistent with our commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment for our Members’ annual meeting, and in light of public health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus and possible governmental meeting restrictions, the DDKS Board of Directors voted to hold this year’s Meeting virtually via GoToWebinar.
To ensure a smooth and secure meeting, DDKS will be utilizing the services of an experienced outside company to conduct the meeting. Participation in this format will permit participants to both hear and see presentations as well as ask questions.
