Mark your calendars for May 26 at 2 pm PST–we will be holding our 2020-2021 AEA Board of Trustees budget workshop, and will be streaming live to the public.  As this is a regular Board meeting, in keeping with the Brown Act the public will be able to access the agenda within 72 hours of the meeting start time.  Go to and click the Board of Trustees menu to access the agenda, the link for live streaming, and the online form to submit public comment.

Today we continued our food and technology distribution efforts.  We are closing in on the 40,000 mark for meals distributed since the start of the closures.  We are also excited for tomorrow’s Feeding the Front Lines program in partnership with Luna Grill, which will take place from 12-2 pm at AEACMS while supplies last.  I’ve blogged on this topic several times since last week; you can also access any of our social media outlets for more information.  Once again many thanks to those who have continued to serve us during this pandemic.

We received a shipment of AEA masks today, and they look great (we must find comfort in the small things during these times!).  We will be distributing them to our staff and community while supplies last–stay tuned for more details soon….

Stay safe, stay healthy.
