2020 Spring Conference – An Important Message

2020 Spring Conference – An Important Message

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:

  • If you have already registered for the Conference, we will be holding on to your registration and fees with hopes that Conference will be rescheduled.
  • If you still would like a refund for your registration fee, please contact Louise Skinner, our conference registrar.
  • If you have made a reservation at the Grand Hotel & Spa, please be sure to cancel it.  We will not be canceling your reservation for you. Call the Hotel at (410) 289-6191.

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.

Thank you,
Governor Debbie
