Instilling Trust

As the COVID-19 virus continues to impact our country, CLIHTF has shifted to a fully remote work environment. Our employees have settled into their new routines, virtual meetings are happening, and business continues to function at its highest level of efficiency. Even though CLIHTF has typically functioned in a traditional office environment, we were pleased with how quickly we were able to transition to remote work. This was due to the incredible efforts of our IT staff and all of our employees embracing the unexpected and urgent change. 

As we all navigate these uncertain times, we appreciate your continued business.
