Message from the Flight Deck Regarding our “Sky’s The Limit” 43rd Annual Convention

Folks, we’ve experienced some severe turbulence due to COVID-19 entering our great state and current CDC guidelines regarding the holding of large events. We've been circling above with the hope to land this year's Convention at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Unfortunately, the current situation has made it impossible for us to do so. We are now implementing a "Plan B" flight diversion routing through the land of Zoom. Stay tuned for updates from your crew!

We have made the difficult and unprecedented decision to cancel our in-person 43rd Annual Convention scheduled for May 15-17, 2020 in Beaver Creek. While we are incredibly disappointed, everyone's health and safety is of utmost importance to us.

Those who had already made hotel reservations at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek will be hearing directly from them about deposit refunds and cancellations. Please have patience with them, as nearly all of their staff are currently on furlough.


NOW WHAT? ONWARD AND UPWARD!

We are changing flight plans and creating a virtual Convention for you to take place during the first two weeks of May. We will also be holding our Annual Meeting and Passing the Gavel Celebration virtually on May 16, 2020.

Our wonderful Convention Committee has been working since last summer to create an amazing offering of learning and fun for all of you. A virtual convention will give us a chance to bring their work to life.

Sky's The (Virtual) Limit virtual Convention will bring you some of our excellent speakers and programming via Zoom. We'll be sharing details soon!

Our committed sponsors and those who were already registered for Convention will be receiving direct correspondence from us regarding refunds and options for transferring a portion of your payments toward registration for the virtual CLE programming. We are so grateful to all who were already signed up to participate and support Convention.


The CWBA's prestigious Mary Lathrop Trailblazer Award will now be presented to Velveta Golightly-Howell during the 2021 Convention, along with our 2021 honoree recognition, during a reception at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Read more about Mrs. Howell and the history of the award, and see a list of previous recipients here


WE'LL BE BACK!

We've already signed a contract with the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek for our 44th Annual Convention to take place May 21-23, 2021.

ABOVE ALL, BE WELL, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
