IMPORTANT!!! Conference and Training is postponed

To Our National PAL Membership Family & Friends:

On behalf of our National PAL Board of Directors and Executive Staff, we wanted to send you this communication to provide you with updated information as it relates to recent developments amid the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Regarding Our 2020 National PAL Training & Conference

The full National PAL Board and Executive Staff has agreed that it is in the best interest of the safety of our collective National PAL Chapter Members, Training Facilitators, Guest Speakers, Families and attending Friends, that we seek to postpone our conference until August 10th - August 14th.  We have been assured by the New Orleans Marriott that we will still be afforded the same hotel rate of $132.00 per night.  As it relates to currently made hotel reservations, you will need to go back into the system or call to cancel your current reservations, once we provided the new reservation passkey link, it will be emailed out to everyone to renew their reservation.  Please note: IF YOU FAIL TO CANCEL YOUR ROOMS, YOU WILL BE CHARGED & NPAL WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE!  In regards to your NPAL Conference Registration Fees made, if you still plan on attending the conference, you will not need to do anything, as we will keep you on the conference registration roster as having paid.  However, if the new dates for the conference poses a problem for you and you would like to seek a full refund (minus transaction fees made), you will be asked to send an email to Jeff Hood at [email protected] along with your contact and registration information and a refund check will be processed and forwarded back in the name that it was originally submitted. In regards to the election of officers for the 2020 Conference, we will be postponing the fulfillment of the election until the newly recognized National PAL Conference date of August 10th - 14th.
**Please also note that Nominations for the board election will close today at 5:00pm eastern, if you are interested in running for a position on the board, please forward your completed election documents to [email protected] If for any reason that you fail to provide the documents on time, you will be able to be recognized and nominated from the floor, however, official documents will still need to be presented in advance of your being added to the election ballot.

Safety

In light of this Pandemic situation, though each of you, our member chapters, operate independently and adhere to either your local Boards Of Directors or Law Enforcement Chain of Command, we wanted to still provide you with some information that may aid you and your PAL Chapter in the daily operation of your programs. For safety recommendations and precautions, please click on this provided link for prevention methods, information and recommendations outlined by the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html  We are hopeful that you will keep in mind what is in the very best interest of your participating youth, staff, volunteers and community members. Please take the necessary time to speak with your staff/volunteers and youth to educate them on best practice and standards for dealing with this situation.

If you have any questions relative to any of the above, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at your convenience.

All the very Best!
