Arrowmen of the Section, we hope you all are staying well through this crisis and we pray we all get through this with a stronger drive and motivation to serve our fellows and strive for a better tomorrow.
Since the start of the outbreak, the Section leadership has been discussing the fate of this year’s Conclave. National OA released a statement cancelling or postponing all Section level events through May 2nd and our Conclave falls into this bracket.
After looking at all our options in the months of June, July, August and September, we have decided it is not possible to reschedule such an event. With a heavy heart the Section Officers and Advisers have decided to cancel the 2020 Conclave.
Refunds will be issued for all who have signed up for Conclave by the Michigan Crossroads Council. Those refunds will be sent by check on April 16, 2020.
As we move forward, we are excited to announce that we are planning to do some virtual trainings. These will be conducted on May 2, 2020. We feel it is still very important that our brothers are prepared and trained to continue to provide high level servant leadership when we all come out of this crisis. Additional announcements will be coming soon with how Section elections will be handled and how we will focus on NOAC, future lodge events and Conclave 2021
Our mission as a Section still remains, we will continue to work to strengthen and improve our order in the mitten and to prepare the leaders of tomorrow. We wish you all the best, stay home and stay safe
