Los Angeles, CA--  March has certainly been roaring in like a Lion, and it's not looking to quiet down any time soon. For all of you with businesses in hard-hit areas, we here at COVR, are sending you healing and restorative energy to carry you through this profound time.

As you all know, the 2022 COVR Visionary Awards have closed to submissions and we are now ramping up for the exciting 'voting season'! HERE is the link to this years Voter's Guide! It's an opportunity to see the best products in the mind, body, spirit marketplace including new releases and popular best-selling items. Many of the COVR Visionary Awards nominee's will be presenting their products to the COVR membership via email through the completion of voting on April 25th. We hope you'll enjoy the important, innovative, and healing information coming your way over the next month.

Finally, I am so inspired by all the new ideas and products in the awards this year and will be thrilled to present to you the finalists in May, followed by our in-person awards banquet in Denver, at INATS this year! We cannot wait to see you at the COVR booth! Most of all, we are grateful to all our members for building an interesting and innovative, ever-expanding, mind, body, spirit marketplace!

10,000 Blessings to You,

INATS® The Tradeshow for Conscious Living June 10-12, 2022
Two weeks ago, we sent 2 email blasts to our stores and buyers. One announced the opening of registration, the other was a brief survey. The two main topics were about Seminars and the all-important Are You Coming? The majority of the responses were Yes, we are coming! Fewer than 10 % said they were unable to attend this year, and a number said they were still unsure. These are very positive for this early in the year and we expect a solid turnout.
CLICK HERE to see what's going on.
INATS has always tried to offer seminars that focus on the nuts and bolts of running your business and will continue to do so. Interestingly, after the crazy years we have had, when asked about Inspirational Sessions to Lift Your Spirits, more than half the stores said yes to those!
We are working on the seminar line-up now and are still accepting submissions. You can find the “Appear” form at inats.com/appear .

Omaha, Nebraska-- Entries have closed for the 2022 COVR Visionary Awards and we set another record this year with over 200 entrants! So, what’s next?

Be on the look-out for the Voter’s Guide that will be published on March 25th. This will allow voters to get familiar with each entry before the voting period begins in April. Once it’s published, you’ll want to share it far and wide—on social media, newsletters, websites, etc.! You want your fans to see your work and to learn more about it so they can make the best selections on the ballot. The Voter’s Guide will be available as a downloadable PDF document and will also be linked through our website, www.covr.org.

Voting will begin on April 4th and will run through April 25th. Entrants will receive a voting link that can be shared with the public, which we encourage you to do immediately and often throughout the voting period. COVR Members will also receive an email with a special voting link for their weighted votes. This will also be sent out on April 4th so be sure to check your spam folders if you don’t see it! Remember, all voters may only vote ONE TIME. Our ballot system tracks the votes and attempts to “stuff the ballot” and repeated voters will be disqualified.

Finalists will be notified via email on May 2nd and are encouraged to make plans to attend INATS in June to accept their awards in person!

Be sure to check out all the wonderful products this year and best of luck to all the entrants! If you have any questions or run into any issues throughout the process, please contact [email protected].

Warm regards,
