On March 13, in a communication from Soroptimist Headquarters, we were asked to postpone or cancel all club and region events through at least April 15. We were also made aware that our liability insurance for all clubs and regions located in the US or Canada does not cover communicable diseases, like COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Therefore, holding Spring Conference would be considered negligent, placing great risk upon our members, Central East Coast Region and Headquarters. The health and safety of our members is our highest priority and we plan to reschedule Spring Conference for a later date.
To address some issues and next steps:
We will be in touch with additional information on rescheduling Spring Conference. Please make sure to take some time to examine your own Club events and Meetings for the March 13-April 15 time period.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact me.
