NACo Forced to Cancel 2020 WIR Conference Set for California
The safety and well-being of conference participants is the top priority for the National Association of Counties (NACo). In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and after much thoughtful discussion, the NACo Western Interstate Region (WIR) Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the WIR conference that was scheduled for mid-May in Mariposa County.
If you registered for the conference, your registration fee will be refunded automatically – no further action is required. If you made a hotel reservation, Tenaya Lodge will automatically refund housing deposits as well, but please be patient as they work through hundreds of reservations.
An excellent program iwas being developed by NACo, Mariposa County, CSAC and RCRC. Details on future programming will be released as soon as they are available. In the coming weeks, NACo will announce plans for a digital alternative to the NACo Board of Directors meeting that typically takes place in conjunction with the WIR conference.
In the meantime, please visit NACo.org/coronavirus to access the latest COVID-19 resources on NACo’s federal policy advocacy, county responses and other information we hope will be useful during this unprecedented public health emergency.
