COVID19 Adaptation

COVID Journal - The Escrow Association is now taking “reinvent ourselves to remain relevant” to the extreme.   

 

We are going to come out of this SIP to encounter a new world.

 

Working from home

Face masks and gloves

Social distancing at least 6 feet apart

Handshakes replaced by elbow bumps

Reservations required or lines at the restaurants that are still in business but at half the seating capacity

Less travel – more Zoom

 

            We will need to adapt and EASCV will help you through that.          

 

April 2020

 

So…this is happening!  A couple of things to keep in mind:

 

We’ve all gone through rough times.  Maybe not like this as a global community, but as individuals and we’ve all made it through. We’ve been sick, laid off, not able to pay the bills, lost loved ones, we made it through.  The good of all this is that people are pulling together. We’re not alone.  So, as they say “This too shall pass”.  It will be a different world but we’ll gradually adjust into it. AND

 

I’ve heard this likened to a storm.  “We cannot control the wind, but we can adjust our sails so we get to where we want to be”.

 

 That all being true, I don’t think we all are going to be meeting personally anytime soon. 

I wish the staff of the Three Flames well and hope they come out of this.

 

I suggest we go virtual.  We are discussing the option of offering the education events we would meet for at diner now, offered in a Zoom video conference format.  At a considerable

discount of course. 

EASCV is a non-profit association but we need to keep up financially.   Please be understanding.

 

Watch for email invites to future virtual events AND maybe virtual social events (For Members Only) – a Friday evening happy hour of sorts just to discuss how we are doing, coping methods, keeping our mindsets inline, our sanity etc…

 

 

May 2020

 

So…this is STILL happening! 

 

We’ll get through it.  I think it will be a different world for awhile and maybe gradually get back to the way it was “pre-COVID”. But never the same…

 

Many of us may be working from home. I hear companies are realizing that they may not need the fancy office space any more. 

 

Zoom is going to be a normal.

 

The Escrow Association is going to be more relevant as new procedures are needed and training will be necessary to comply to new regulations associated with work at home.  Productivity issues, security concerns, etc.  We’re making a list and we will be the source of that training.

 

 I can’t imagine how conferences will look.Maybe all virtual? We are already exploring that

option for NorCal and the CEA Conference.

 

In fact, please see the SAVE THE DATE in this issue For the May Zoom Virtual Meeting featuring the FTB and the infamous 593.
