The 2020 District Conference and District Assembly have been cancelled due to concerns about the Coronavirus
 
Dear Rotarian,
 
Due to concerns about the Coronavirus I have decided to cancel the District 5080 Conference scheduled for May 14-17, 2020 and Governor Elect Tim Fredrickson has also cancelled the Spring Assembly scheduled for April 18, 2020.  The District Conference Committee and the District 5080 Governor Line has discussed this and we decided that it is in the best interest of our Rotarians and our District to take this action.  
 
If you have already registered for the District Conference you will be receiving an e-mail about receiving a refund.  Because we are cancelling this just two months before it was scheduled there have been considerable funds already expended.  With the e-mail there will be an option to donate your registration fees to the District to offset these expenditures.  If you chose this option, we thank you for your generosity.  
 
If you registered for the Spring Assembly you should already have received notice of a refund.  Rotary International is putting together some on-line training for those Districts that cancel their Spring Training and we will let you know when this comes available.  We will also be doing some training via GoToMeeting.  There will be additional information on this as it becomes available.
 
This is a difficult time for Rotarians, the District, the Country and the World.  I know that with your support our District will remain strong and we will get through this event.
