2020 International Convention News

2020 convention letter

In a letter received by our Delegate we have been given some news about the 2020 International convention: (also go to for the latest info)

As most of you are aware, in the spring the decision was made to cancel the 2020 International Convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While this was a difficult decision, and a disappointing outcome for those planning to attend, we are confident it was the most appropriate action to ensure the health and safety of our members. There is good news, however, as we now have an opportunity to bring together many of the special components that make International Conventions memorable — by utilizing a virtual platform.

2020 Mass State Convention CANCELED

Yet another casualty of the pandemic, it has been made official that the Mass State Convention has been canceled for 2020. A new contract will be worked on for 2021.
