Conference Updates

Conference information is on its own page

The Fall Conference will Occur

We have been given the entire area to hold our training making it much easier to social distance. We will all have to follow whatever rules the facility has in place but I think for the most part we can easily do this as most have similar rules in place currently in our offices. We as your board will be taking temps on a daily basis at sign in as well as a short questionnaire to have available. Please remember room cutoffs date is August 20th and be sure to call the number on the website to get the cocm room block price. The only way the conference won't happen is a total shutdown of the state so please know we are doing everything on this end to insure the safety off all of the members and staff. Please follow the website often as we will put messages on there as things change. Please if you are doing snail mail send out as soon as you can as we are seeing a big slow down in the us postal service and make sure your membership dues are paid up. We have everything up on the website at this time and the numbers for the classes are coming in so its looking good. The golf outing is still planned as always, we will have some venders but ask you limit the number of people around the area. I have spoken to the food services people and they have given me a great deal of confidence in their ability's to make our meals safely and delicious. I hope that anyone that is thinking about it will go forward with plans to attend and with all of your help we will still be able to have a great conference with some minor changes on how things are done. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone this fall. I for one will be thankful when 2020 wraps up. Thank you and I hope to keep everyone up to date on any and all changes as they become available to me. I know some of you may not want these emails however I feel it's very important that you all know what/s happening. Thanks Again Tim Gardner
