Let's Build It! 2020 WATVA Annual Meeting & Convention

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information & Update

On March 18th, 2020 the WATVA Board of Directors called a special meeting to discuss the latest news regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the impact it might have on our upcoming 2020 Let's Build It! workshops and annual meeting in Stevens Point. We are taking this matter very seriously, as we want to ensure the safety of our membership and the general public.

After our discussions and reviewing CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) information and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services safety protocols (https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/disease/coronavirus.htm), we have determined our workshops will fall outside the suggested guidelines, thus our board has decided to postpone with planning our convention on April 3rd, 4th & 5th. We will work with the hotel on a new date for 2020.

If you had booked your room under the WATVA block, your room should be automatically cancelled within the next few days (3/19/2020).
