Dear GFWC Georgia Federated Sisters,
Our 124th annual state convention will be postponed at this time. The event will NOT be held at Unicoi State Park and Lodge on April 17-19, 2020. We do plan to reschedule the event for one day in June to conduct our necessary business, present awards, and complete installation. it will be a one day event. The tentative plan involves using a church facility in Jackson, GA. The state will not have overnight lodging arranged. More details will follow as we iron out those things and continue to watch the CO-VID 19 updates and CDC and government recommendations.
Unicoi Lodge was amazing to work with through these times and have cancelled our contract with no penalties or cost to us. If you did register for a room, your room will automatically be cancelled. Some of you may have already received these cancellation email notices. Armenda Barnes, treasurer, will be mailing checks to you for your refund minus the Constant Contact fee associated with using our online credit registration.
Please know this was not taken lightly but the decision was based on the health and safety of our membership. We do need to move forward in our organization and will plan to conduct the necessary business soon. I appreciate all of your support and patience during this time.
With federated love and kindness,
State President 2018-2020
