Your health and safety are a priority to us. We are following the COVID-19 pandemic situation closely. As we enter the summer and more COVID-19 vaccines get administered, we hope that the guidelines for social gatherings would be more favorable for an in-person event. We will make an announcement in the event we determine that the Awards Ceremony should be moved to a virtual platform due to the pandemic.
