  GAMA Automation Update and BMW Plant Tour - To Be Rescheduled

Due to the latest developments relating to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), BMW has told us that they are postponing our March 26th tour of the BMW Body Shop.  All the other related presentations that day have also been postponed.  BMW is willing to reschedule to another point in time, yet to be determined.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  GAMA will honor all registrations at that future meeting.  You will automatically be registered for that future date.  We hope to be back in touch on this soon.
