WVCEH staff spent several hours on-site with Canaan Valley Resort Conference Center Staff this morning discussing contingency planning for the WV Annual Conference to End Homelessness, and it is with a heavy heart that we write this notification. Given the recent concerns over COVID-19, we have decided to reschedule the conference to Tuesday, August 18, Wednesday, August 19 and Thursday, August 20, 2020 with the Pre-Conference Sessions being held on Monday, August 17. Please mark your calendars to join us in August!
Hotel reservations already made on the group block have been cancelled by Canaan Resort and any pre-payments or deposits will be refunded within 10 business days to your account. A new hotel booking link in the coming days, or, you can call Canaan Resort directly to rebook your rooms for the August dates as the hotel has the block held for us.
Our registration links will remain live on the conference website.
All paid Conference registrations will be honored and moved to the new dates. If you are unable to attend the new dates in August, please let us know and we will be happy to fully refund your registration rate paid.
All presenters (schedules pending) will remain the same and the overall conference schedule and format will not change.
We feel as though this is the responsible decision to make in light of the many travel restrictions being put into place. We regret any inconvenience this may be to you, but hope you will still be able to join us, or sign up if you have not already, on our new dates in August!!
We urge you to stay up to date on all guidance being issued by our Federal partners in regards to carrying for your clients, customers, and staff in this time.
My best to you all,
