To all FREA Members,
Your FREA leaders are wishing all good health and the wisdom to follow the directives of the health care professionals and take the next 2 weeks to stay home and and stay safe. The FREA office is still open as Diane and I work about 20 feet from each other. We are taking this time to virtually create the vital activities of the 2020 Convention. We will still be holding Committee Meetings, District Director Meetings, Board Meetings, and Foundation Meetings, through the magic of Zoom technology.
With the plethora of information, and misinformation, out there, we will not be posting any health updates. We will leave that to the professionals. Below is a link to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
What can you do to help? Please reach out to members that you know do not use the internet or email. Let them know that you are thinking of them. If you have younger family members who are shopping for food for you, ask anyone you speak to if they need someone to shop for them. There are those who may not be blessed to have a support group like yours.
What does FREA need from you right now? Unit Presidents, please send in your delegate sheets. We will be holding voting by email, so the delegate will need to be able to vote by email. That is all we need and are asking for at this time. Once the world settles into the new normal, we will let leaders know the game plan for the Virtual Convention.
Updates will be happening as decisions are made. The Executive Committee is tentatively holding a virtual meeting via Zoom on April 3rd to craft a new way forward with Convention.
We live in interesting times and we are blessed to be going through this crisis while living in America. Thank you and again, please stay safe and healthy out there!
Anne M Fagan, FREA Executive Director
