FRCNA 39 - COVID-19 June Update
We understand that each of our members, the fellowship as a whole and our community may continue to be impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19). OUR main goal remains a priority which is to ensure the safety and well-being of our fellowship (attendees) according to all current COVID-19 CDC, Federal, State, Local Municipalities and the venue’s guidelines, while fulfilling our contract with the venue and preserving our long- standing relationships with our business partners. It goes without saying, the spread of COVID-19 has had a severe impact on all our lives. However, many local businesses, including FRC, Inc., have found incredible ways to adapt to these changing times. We, along with our business partners, continue to monitor on a daily basis, and at times hourly, the unpredictability of this virus and are mutually in compliance with all governmental Executive Orders, recommendations, and mandates.
We have NOT postponed or cancelled the convention. WE (Florida Regional Convention) continue to move forward with the planning and execution of FRCNA 39 “Living the Dream” July 2, 2020 – July 5, 2020 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida.
