Because of the world wide public health crisis, and with everyone’s health and welfare in mind, we must cancel the exams scheduled for May 6, 2020.  We are working diligently on a possible alternate date, and will keep you posted immediately by email when decisions are made. At that time, we will also post news on our homepage (www.abop.net).  We regret that events beyond our control have created difficulties, and hope you are safe.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
