2020 Convention Update: Modified Format Announced
An open letter to the MSFA and LAMSFA Membership
We, as a nation, find ourselves in an unprecedented time and as a result of this pandemic, every state in the nation is being faced with very tough decisions relative to business, travel and especially, social distancing. For the MSFA and the LAMSFA, the impact of COVID-19 has affected many of our organizational operations and our ability to gather as a fire service community. Many questions have been raised about the upcoming 128th Annual Convention and Conference and the MSFA Executive Committee has moved forward with recommendations made by the Convention and Conference Steering Committee.
First and foremost, the 2020 Convention and Conference is not being cancelled but will be going to a modified format and conducted in two phases over the summer months. This means that we will not be traveling to Ocean City in June, due to the pandemic, but will be holding aspects of the convention virtually.
The Executive Committee has instructed the Convention and Conference Steering Committee to finalize the program aspects of the 2020 gathering and the final agenda items will be pushed out early in the month of May.
Please stay connected with the MSFA Web Page and/or social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, to stay current as aspects of the program are completed.
While this is not the norm for either organization, it is the best possible way to carry on the convention, meet the requirements of our organizational by laws, and celebrate a year of service of our elected officers. Both Lori and I hope you will participate in both phases of the 2020 Convention and Conference as we continually move the LAMSFA and MSFA forward.
As additional information becomes available, we will send it out to all of you. Be Safe and Stay Healthy.
