FRIDAY UPDATE FROM PRESIDENT DAN:
September 18, 2020
National Convention - The National Executive Board voted on Monday, September 14 to set the dates for the 2020 UPMA National Convention to take place at the Marriott Grand Hotel in St. Louis, October 28-30, 2020. In order to meet the safety and health guidelines from the CDC and those that are in place in St. Louis at the present time, it is necessary to limit the in-person attendance to up to 122 people. For that reason, we are limiting attendance to two active members per chapter who will be registered by the Chapter President directly with the National Office. The materials for this registration process have been sent to the presidents. In addition, we will be offering an opportunity for the members to view the convention via ZOOM.

DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT "FREE" REGISTRATION?
WOW! What an exceptional opportunity to First-Timers! For the first time ever, UPMA is offering free registration to first timers (Active and Retired) to attend the 2020 National Convention in St. Louis! Here is how it works: You MUST register hard-copy by printing the ST. Louis Registration Form, filling it out, and mailing to the national office. You CANNOT register on-line. You MUST pay the $95 registration fee in advance. AFTER attending the convention, you MUST submit a form provided later to the National Office to be reimbursed. The pre-registration reserves your seat at general meetings, hospitality rooms, entertainment events, and all planned food functions by allowing the Planners to know how many to plan for. If you have never attended a national convention, this is YOUR year to see what it's all about. We are certain you will be back!
