It is with profound sadness I need to announce that the Tri-State Convention with our UPMA brothers and sisters from Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, in Hood River, OR, June 4-7, 2020, will be cancelled. The health, welfare, and family priorities of our members and guests as well as the unknown civil public health orders were too great of a challenge to plan around and put on a large event such as this. The joint planning committee agreed to try for a Tri-State in 2021 at the same venue, which by then will have all new meeting spaces from their renovation that is currently happening.
Each chapter (ID/OR/WA) will have an individual “convention” or meeting prior to the National Convention in St. Louis, MO, August 1-7, 2020. Information on that will be available from each chapters executive boards.
For those who have registered, checks will be mailed back,and for those that booked rooms at the Best Western Hood River, it would be best to call them and confirm the cancellation at: 800-828-7873.
On behalf of Oregon President Padric Fisher and Idaho President Amye Ground-Madsen, I want to thank Vicky Brown and Jackie Gurr for their excellent and legendary planning skills. They were planning a great event, and I know the next time we all can get together, they and all of you will all be able to give a huge collective hug and really experience how united we can be. Be safe, be well. - President Gordon
