Dear VAAP Member,
The health and wellness of our conference participants as well as the VAAP Membership is always our top priority, especially amid this peak flu season, and considering the recent measures across Virginia to contain a wide spread outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). After much deliberation, the VAAP Board has determined that it would be best to cancel this year’s annual VAAP Conference, which was to be held in Newport News, March 24 – 27, 2020.
Hotel reservations should be cancelled by contacting the Marriott Newport News DIRECTLY at (757) 873-9299.
VAAP Treasurer Jo Tice will be refunding Conference registrations made through PayPal as well as those that were paid by check. We thank you in advance for your patience as we work to resolve the financial issues associated with the cancellation of this conference.
The VAAP Board is so appreciative for your interest in attending the 2020 Conference, “Activity Professionals – Ordinary Heroes.” We encourage you to keep visiting the VAAP website: www.VAAPONLINE.org and reading the VAAP Voice to keep abreast of other educational opportunities that VAAP will be offering its membership in the upcoming months.
If you have additional questions about the coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit the Centers for Disease Control website: www.cdc.gov or the Virginia Department of Health website: www.vdh.virginia.gov.
Again, thank you for your interest in attending the 2020 VAAP Conference. More importantly, thank you for caring for and protecting our Older Adults in Virginia. You epitomize our 2020 Conference theme: “Activity Professionals – Ordinary Heroes.”
The VAAP Board of Directors
