Update on National Convention 2020:

As has been reported elsewhere in UPMA correspondence the National Executive Board has voted to move the location of the 2020 National Convention from Omaha, Nebraska to St. Louis, Missouri.    This is a decision that was not an easy one to make.   In the last two weeks we were made aware by the Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau that many of the rooms and suites that had been promised to us have been released to another group, so Omaha was not able to meet their agreed to obligations.    We attempted to find alternative dates, but they were outside of the agreed to timeframe that was outlined when the original bid was submitted.  

As a result, we will be negotiating with representatives from St. Louis to secure the best agreement we can possibly obtain there.   I apologize that this move had to be taken, however after looking at all the information available, the board felt we had no other alternative.    

If you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me at the National Office.

National President
