Recently many of you received a letter announcing our exciting plans for a VA NOW state conference. Please know that it was mailed weeks ago, but bulk mailing delayed its delivery. So with all the latest restrictions and due to an abundance of caution and concern over the current health crisis facing our state and our nation, the Executive Committee of Virginia NOW, Inc. has decided to postpone its Annual State Meeting and Elections scheduled for April 18, 2020 until gatherings of 50 or more people are sanctioned by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the VA Department of Health. We hope that a time in midsummer may be possible.
In addition, National NOW has postponed the national conference (being done in conjunction with the Feminist Majority), slated originally the first weekend in June, until late summer or early fall this year. We will post information about rescheduling this important, fun gathering when we learn about it. Since the conference is being held in DC, VA NOW is a part of the Host Committee and welcomes any member who would like to join the VA NOW convention team.
None of us have lived through these kinds of cancellations and quarantines and we need to take care of ourselves, our loved ones, our friends and neighbors, our feminist sisters, our community and our future. The Executive Committee wishes that everyone stay healthy and follow the suggested guidelines to protect yourselves and others.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 703-283-0483 or email me at President@VANOW.org
In the cause of women’s equality,
VA NOW, Inc.
