    Virtual ZOOM Meeting


    We were hoping to make the March 2 meeting a hybrid meeting. However, Des Moines Golf cannot accommodate us in a socially distanced way that day, so the Board decided to make this a virtual-only meeting. We should hopefully be able to start up the hybrid meetings in May as there will be adequate space at DMGCC to socially distance. We will be charging a small fee ($10 total - this covers both webinars) for these webinars in order to cover the CE application and filing costs. Thank you for your understanding!  

    12:00pm – 1:00pm: Session 1. "Unraveling the True Meaning of ESG Investing" - Sponsored by Ascensus
