We thank you for continued support of the Joint Western & Mountain Districts Annual Meeting and your patience as we have worked through our current crisis and hotel contracts. We can now share with you that we will be transitioning the Joint Western & Mountain Districts Annual Meeting to a virtual meeting on June 28-July 1, 2020. We advise all attendees who have made reservations at the Hilton Hawaiian Village to cancel their room reservations at this time. In addition, if you visit our website you will notice some changes.
Our Technical Committee has been hard at work restructuring our technical sessions. Our plan includes one-hour, topic-driven sessions between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM (PST). Our speakers who have indicated that they would like to be included in a virtual program will be hearing from our committee soon.
The District’s Student Funding & Initiatives Committee (SFIC) has been hard at work restructuring our students and young professional programming. We will still be hosting a MiteY Race, Kell Competition, Student Traffic Bowl, and Career Guidance Sessions.
The registration fees for the meeting have been significantly reduced to ensure that this meeting is accessible to as many of our members as possible. Member registrations will be priced at $50 with non-member registrations priced at $150. These prices will hold up until the meeting dates. If you have already registered for the meeting, we will be reaching out to you soon with regards to converting your registrations.
Finally, we will host a virtual Western District Annual Business Meeting on Tuesday June 30 at 2:00 PM (PDT) and members are welcome to attend for free. The LAC is still working on many of the other aspects of the meeting and will continue to post updates as they become available. Please block time on your calendars for our meeting. Until then, please take care of yourselves and those around you.
