FREA Convention is Cancelled - Update March 16, 2020

Good afternoon,

It was with no choice that the FREA Executive Committee, through the FREA Bylaws approved electronic voting process (email), voted to cancel the FREA Convention for 2020.  The decision was taken due to the CDC directive below.  Our Convention fell within the 60 day no-large-meeting window, and our membership is in the high risk category.

  • We will return all registrations so far received.
  • The bulletin is out, without this latest news, so any future registrations received will be returned.
  • We ask that everyone help get the word out to their members in any way possible. 

Convention required events and processes will still be taking place such as electronic voting, Certificate of Recognition from units and Extravaganza tickets etc.. Unit Officers will be kept informed through Their District leaders and emails.

We will send out updates and further information as we we create the processes.  This is a paradigm change for all of us, so please be patient.

We are so sorry this has happened, but the safety and health of our members is paramount.  What can you do to help?  Please, please, please get the word out to everyone.  Especially those members with no email addresses.  It may be time to activate the phone trees again.  All Unit Presidents recently received updated member lists.

Thank you and again, updates will be happening as decisions are made.
