Corporate Partner key dates

The HBA keeps a "key dates" calendar for our corporate partners on the HBA website (and updates sent via bi-monthly newsletter), but often our leaders receive questions for less-publicized dates/deadlines. In an effort to ensure our CR leaders are as fully informed as possible, please see below annual CR timeline, which dives deeper. 

Please note: all dates are subject to change. Dates listed in red are TBD but will will be updated when the dates are set.
