Cal-Neva AFS Members and 2020 Meeting Attendees:
We regret to inform you that the upcoming Cal-Neva annual meeting, to be held March 15-17, 2020 in Folsom, CA, is canceled. This was a very difficult decision for the meeting planning and executive committees to make. Given the uncertainties associated with COVID-19 and restrictions on travel and meeting attendance, we felt it was in the best interest of meeting attendees, their families, and the public to cancel this gathering. Additionally, because several speakers and registrants are being restricted from participating, or have decided that it is in their own best interest not to attend, we feel the quality of the program is greatly compromised.
Cal-Neva Chapter will be issuing full refunds through Eventbrite for registration. Just a reminder, too, that if you booked a room at the Lake Natoma Inn to cancel your room reservation as soon as possible so that rooms can be rebooked. We would like to give a special shout-out to the Lake Natoma Inn for their exceptional service and graciousness in not only accommodating the various hosting needs of our meeting, but also providing us with a very fair arrangement for canceling on very short notice. We look forward to working with the Inn on future engagements, and highly recommend them to those seeking accommodations when visiting the Sacramento region.
Another reminder – Remember to vote in the election for new Cal-Neva officers (President-Elect and Secretary), if you have not already done so. Current chapter members were sent an e-mail on February 15, 2020 with a code enabling them to vote by SurveyMonkey. Voting will continue through 3:00 PM, Monday, March 16, 2020. We will announce election results through a newsblast and on the Chapter website.
