Due to COVID 19 programs in the near future will be presented online.  Since we cannot collect checks "at the meeting" we require you to register with a credit card until such time as we can meet in person and accept checks online. Once we have in-person meetings again we will re-enable the billing option.  Please coordinate with your company to provide a credit card to register for a meeting, or contact our treasurer to arrange payment prior to the meeting.  Unregistered/Unpaid users will not be given the meeting password or details: treasurer@gvcshrm.org
