All-Virginia Event for 2020 Cancelled

Re: All-Virginia Event 2020

Colleagues, As a result of the COVID-19 situation across the Commonwealth, the leadership of VBODA and VCDA in conjunction with VMEA have decided to cancel the combined All-Virginia Event for 2020. While the decision is difficult, these times dictate action needed to be taken immediately for planning purposes. The following factors contributed to this decision:

· Risk of exposure to COVID-19 for a large group clustered together for a weekend
· Increasing non-participation as school districts cancel student travel
· State of Emergency issued by Governor Northam
· Encumbering of district funds for this event and the resultant remittance
· Sensitivity to timing for membership for planning purposes

All details regarding financial implications will be forthcoming to our membership soon. While cancelling the All-Virginia Event for the first time in our history is difficult, the health and well-being of our students and directors must be our primary concern. The logistics of the event will preclude any ability to reschedule for this year.

Respectfully,

Brian Kelly / Doug Spruill
