If you'd like to invite one or two folks interested in learning about the community / meeting you all (who wouldn't?), we welcome it - just run it by Emily as she monitors headcount. Thanks for understanding!

Given the progress in the NYC area toward greater access to vaccines and and vaccinating the population, we feel comfortable sponsoring this event. However, we encourage you to make your own judgment call on attending. We also understand if you want to join in on the next one.
