July 2012 market activity now online
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT DNC AND ASSOCIATION BUILDING
Members: Due to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) activities Uptown and our building being adjacent to the official protest area, the association will be locked and virtually inaccessible during and around Sept. 3-6. We will determine and communicate association operating hours and staffing levels as we get closer to the convention time period. While we will be “open” for urgent situations, our staffing will be at a minimum. We highly discourage in-person visits to our offices during that time. Please only visit the association prior to or after the convention.
