It is with great disappointment and utter disbelief that I must tell you that our 2020 NFMC Conference in Indianapolis has been canceled. We have monitored the situation and watched the news constantly. Finally, it became obvious that our Conference just could not take place. I am distraught because I know how wonderful this event would have been! So much planning and work has gone into this Conference. Co-Chairs Lisa Cremer and David Mannell have been such joys to work with. They are lovely and detail oriented and I want to thank them for their enthusiasm and creativity! Jennifer has also been such a tireless worker and things worked so smoothly with her guidance and experience. However, safety and common sense must prevail and it is imperative that we all must guard our health during these serious times.
Since our Conference is canceled, we still have some business to conduct and we are researching and figuring out the details of how to handle a few situations. ALSO, we will still compile the reports that you were to send in to be included on the CD of reports that we always get at National meetings. We will put a link on our website to view the reports once they are compiled. All officers and chairs are expected to have written reports prepared for publication with the following deadlines:
May 15-postmark deadline for Committee chairs to email or mail one page report to his/her Division chair.
May 25-postmark deadline for Division chairs to send compilation of Division committee reports to NFMC Headquarters.
May 25-postmark deadline for Officers to email or mail.
State Presidents will also report a synopsis of their year’s activities and you will get instructions for that from the Chairman of the Council of State Presidents.
Please bear with us as we go through the Conference schedule to see what business must be handled even with our meeting canceled. You will get information as decisions are made.
