It is with a heavy heart that we must notify you of the cancellation of our District Conference on April 17-18, 2020 and our District Training Assembly on March 21, 2020.
DG Marta Knight has met with her Conference Committee and has had discussions with DGE Steve Weitzen.  The decision to cancel both the District Conference and District Training Assembly was made with an abundance of caution concerning the Coronavirus and in the interest of the safety of fellow Rotarians and guests.
The decision was not made lightly.  The Conference was going to be the highlight of DG Marta Knight's year and she was very much looking forward to the fellowship of bringing Rotarians together, but given the Coronavirus outbreak, she can not do so with a clear conscience.  She will not put your health at risk.
The District has consulted with various experts and with Rotary International.  Everyone recommends doing what is best for our District which is to protect and provide for the safety of individual Rotarians.  District leadership cannot ignore the substantial safety concerns that are being presented to them.  
District leadership is looking at other options like having a virtual conference or video taping of presentations that would have been presented at the Conference and/or Assembly, including the grants presentation.  More information will follow.
