LETTER from Don Bigger President of MFSIA:

Hi Everyone,

 

I’m sure you all have seen the latest Covid-19 restrictions issued by the State limiting inside gatherings to 50 people.  Along with this, Mark has informed me that all Instructor Coordinators received a memo from MDHHS addressing conferences larger than 50 people.  Mark’s understanding is that if an Instructor Coordinator applies for CE”s and or attends a conference of over 50 people, they could have their and their agencies licenses revoked.  

 

All of this, of course, would limit the number of people we could have at the conference.  We are over doubled that number now.  I have talked to the hotel management several times about ways to still have the conference.  However, as I’m sure most of you know, they are and have been working with limited staff.  With limited staff they are concerned that dividing up our classes, meals, and meetings into smaller groups in different rooms would cause them not to be able to provide good service and enough cleaning time and still stay on our schedule.  Hotel management believes taking everything into account, it may be better to skip this year’s conference and we could just add another year to our current contract.  They would not charge us any fees for canceling because of all the uncontrollable circumstances.

 

Having the conference with limited attendees, no CE’s for the attendees, no hospitality room, no conference meals, no dinner banquet and no MFSIA meeting just doesn’t sound like a very good conference theme for success.  Not to  mention that the socialization and networking is such an important part of our conference. Therefore we are cancelling this years conference to December 2021. 

 

Thank you!

Don
