The Angel Capital Association cares deeply about the health and well-being of our community. ACA understands the coronavirus outbreak is an evolving situation and we are aware of how the uncertainty affects your decision to participate in ACA and Angel Group activities. We are monitoring the coronavirus impact and following recommendations by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health organizations. We are empathetic to those already touched by the impact of coronavirus, as well as for all the other stakeholders that share the responsibility of demonstrating effective judgment and strong leadership during these tumultuous times.
