A Message from the President of LPA regarding COVID19 and upcoming events.
Covid-19 and LPA EventsFirst and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well during this continued global pandemic. As you know, back in March, the LPA Board of Directors cancelled all LPA sanctioned events through May 31st. Recently, due to the continuing risks to our community, we cancelled the National Conference in Austin in July.While restrictions fluctuate from county to county across the country and while social distancing is still of the utmost importance, LPA’s primary concern must continue to be the health and safety of our members. Our organization must continue to take conservative measures when it comes to non-essential gatherings for the near future. Therefore, LPA’s Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to continue the suspension of all LPA sanctioned events through July 31, 2020. This includes all national, regional and chapter events.We realize that our organization is built on our social gatherings. We truly look forward to the day when we can feel confident that our diverse membership can gather in large groups again without risking the health of all our members, especially those with immunocompromised conditions.While not a substitute for in person gatherings, please consider interacting with others in our community via our many Facebook pages and during the month of July with our Virtualpalooza offerings. More details regarding Virtualpalooza will be sent in early June.Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. The LPA Board, staff and officers are here to bridge this divide we are currently relegated to. We will continue to monitor events, advice from the CDC and the opinions of our members in order to make decisions in the best interests of our members and their health in the future.In the meantime, please stay safe and continue to responsibly work towards the mitigation of COVID-19. We care about you all.Mark Povinelli, PresidentDeb Himsel, Executive Director
