It is with great disappointment that I write to let you know that the MASS/Alliance Winter Conference scheduled for later this month is being cancelled out of an abundance of caution and concern for your safety and wellness. If you made reservations at the Westin Jackson, we encourage you to cancel them immediately. Even though our plans included strict virus-prevention protocols, our decision to cancel was the responsible choice in light of increasing COVID-19 cases statewide. We appreciate your support and understanding and apologize for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation.

My hope is that we can begin moving beyond pandemic mode soon and return to normal routines in our homes, communities and schools. We’ve already begun planning for the 2021 MASS/Alliance Summer Convention at Beau Rivage Resort and are confident that we will be able to safely meet in person in July.

In the meantime, please continue making safety and health your top priorities and encourage those around you to do the same.
