============================

As you are all aware ARRL Headquarters has shutdown and  everyone is working from home.  ARRL VEC department is shutdown until further notice. 

Our next scheduled VE Test session would have been May, 14, 2020, but it is cancelled.  I do not expect to conduct another VE Test Session until may be September 2020 assuming life returns to normal during the summer months.  

Thank you for your service in helping candidates become hams or assisting others as they upgrade.  Hopefully, we will do so again in the weeks ahead.

Please keep yourself and your family safe during this time of social distancing.

God Bless.

73,

Gary
