2020 APRIL The Limelighter
OKLAHOMA ORGANIZATION PRESIDENT
due to COVID-19
March 31, 2020
Dear Oklahoma State Members,
In effort to protect you, our treasured members, I have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 State Conference on June 5th and 6th. Unprecedented times call for unprecedented decisions. The President’s 15 Days to Slow the Spread has now been extended through April 30. We do not know what will happen after that. However, I am not confidant that restrictions will be lifted to the point of allowing large gatherings by the first weekend of June. And if it is, I am afraid some will come that will still feel anxious about being out in a crowd and probably should not be. I have struggled with this decision for 2 weeks now. But, for the safety of each of us, I feel it is the best decision based on the information I have at this time. If you have already sent in your registration, you will be getting a refund from Diane Laase.
One of the hardest parts of this decision is not being able to honor chapters and individuals for the hard work you have done in your chapters. We have lots of deadlines for May 1st – Chapter Excellence, Chapter Communication, Annie Award, Schools for Africa, SEE, Order of the Rose, and World Fellowship. I encourage chapters to continue turning these in. You all have worked hard this year and I want to make sure you get the recognition you deserve! We will make sure chapters are recognized and receive their certificates the next time we are together. That may be at a leadership training for new officers later in the summer or at the fall executive board meeting and in our Limelighter. Just know we will be together again as soon as it is safe to do so and I look forward to the day I can give each of you a hug.
Stay safe and well and know that each of you matter to me!
OK State President
