Notification of Cancellation of May 4-5 Mini-Conference

The NARFE/MD Executive Committee met by Conference Call on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 to discuss the upcoming May Mini-Conference. The final
decision was to cancel the May 4-5 Mini-Conference because of the uncertainty surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19); the fact that the virus is most serious and dangerous for people over 65+; and the CDC restrictions on meetings and its order to practice social distancing.
 
NARFE/MD will not reschedule the Mini-Conference.
 
Chapter Presidents:  Please notify your members of this cancellation.
 
Also, those members who have already registered for the Mini-Conference will be reimbursed for their payment. If you have already reserved a hotel
room at the Bowie Comfort Inn, please remember to cancel it.  There shouldn’t be any penalty this far out.
 
The next NARFE/MD Board Meeting is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 5, at the Bowie Comfort Inn, so mark your calendars.
 
The Executive Committee prays for your safety, health and well-being during this critical health crisis.
