Regrettably, the Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma Chapter is canceling our Spring conference in El Paso due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The hotel agreed not to penalize the Chapter for canceling so long as we agree to hold a conference there within the next year. As such, we will hold next year’s Spring conference in El Paso. We anticipate the conference dates to be March 19-20, 2021.
Registration fees for the conference will be refunded through paypal. Most airlines have now implemented broad waivers to their existing change fee policies. Members should negotiate any costs in airfare with the airline.
We were also informed this morning that the tour of CDJ is canceled.
The Spring conference is where we usually decide on donations and announce our new candidates for Secretary. Since we are unable to meet in person this year, we will send an e-ballot for a chapter vote on donations. We will also announce the candidates for Secretary on a later date.
