Due to the rapidly evolving Public Health advice concerning the novel coronavirus (now named COVID-19) it has been decided to extend the cancellation of all Chapter events until further notice. This includes, as previously stated, Chapter meetings, memorial services and social events.
Those Chapters who have requested dispensations to cancel or postpone their meetings, will be covered by this blanket dispensation. We will continue to monitor the situation and will inform you when this decision is changed.
In addition, the Grand Convocation scheduled for April 23, 2020 to April 25, 2020 has been cancelled.
We will make arrangements for an Emergent Convocation when this situation is resolved. Election of Grand Chapter Officers and the Installation of those Officers will be conducted at that time. We will advise once these arrangements have been made and the location where this will take place. All notices of motion will be held in abeyance and will be dealt with at the Grand Convocation next year.
Anyone who has made a reservation with the hotel directly, will have their reservation cancelled by the hotel on their behalf so it will not be necessary to contact the hotel directly. If you made your reservation through an agency such as Expedia or similar agency, you will have to contact that agency to cancel your reservation as the hotel has no control over those reservations.
Please remember your vulnerable Companions and check in on them by phone or e-mail regularly.
Continue to follow the advice of the health authorities and be safe.
Grand First Principal
