ARCOA 2021 Annual Meeting/Convention Cancelled

08/10/2021 10:30 PM | Anonymous

With great regret the ARCOA Board and Council have voted to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting/Convention in Salt Lake City, UT, planned for Sep 23-26.  The current high level of community transmission of the Delta variant of COVID-19, and the four-week forecast for the transmission to remain high in Salt Lake County, Utah, led us to make the health and safety of our members the priority.  The ARC Regional CEO, headquartered in Salt Lake City (boots on the ground), agrees that this is the best decision at this time. 

For those of you who have already registered and/or have a hotel room:

  • You will be notified individually about ARCOA Registration refunds.

  • Hotel Reservations – you have two options:
      1.  You may keep your reservation at the same rate of $152/night (plus taxes and fees) if you still want to visit Salt Lake City;
      2.  You need to cancel your own reservation at Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek.

  • If you let me know that you are still going to SLC, I will send those names around to others still going.

    We are discussing ways to keep in touch with you from afar.

    We feel confident that we will be able to have the 2022 Convention in the Washington, DC, area, and can take part in the Korean War Memorial Re-Dedication on July 27, 2022.  We do not have a hotel contract yet, and we don’t know if we will have our meeting and Memorial Service before or after July 27th.  So, hold the week!
