GPCA Board of Directors

Emergency BOD Meeting

Last night, the GPCA Board of Directors held their second emergency board meeting in 4 days concerning our National Specialty and COVID-19. The 2020 National Specialty and World Conference has been postponed to next year.  The BOD explored other options that included having this year's National Specialty later this year.  The postponement of a full year was the best option.  There are many working parts that are still being clarified.   More details will follow as they are determined.  Please watch for these details in order to reschedule your travel plans.  To cancel your hotel reservation, the phone number for The Founders Inn reservation line is 757-424-5511.  They will be taking new reservations in about 7 weeks.   We certainly hope to see all of you there in 2021.  There’s a lot that needs to get done, so please be patient.  We will get everything settled up as quickly as we possibly can.

The following motion during last night's emergency BOD meeting outlines the above change:

Motion 20200318EM.01:  Whitney moves to postpone this year's 2020 World Conference and 2020 National Specialty due to the coronavirus, with the rescheduled events to be held the week of April 4-April 11, 2021 at the Founders Inn, Virginia Beach, in conjunction with the 2021 National Specialty.  Passed unanimously.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
