2020 MASA/MOSPRA SPRING CONFERENCE
The Lodge of Four Seasons
March 25-27, 2020
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Dear MASA and MOSPRA Members, Presenters, Business Members and Vendors:
While we had hoped to go on with the 2020 Spring Conference, in light of the impact that the coronavirus (COVID 19) is having on our society as a whole, and our school districts in particular, we are canceling the event. As school leaders, we must be good team players by following good, safe health-related practices including social distancing. Furthermore, we understand that those in school leadership are working very hard during this time and leaving their school districts would create an additional hardship.
MASA and MOSPRA leadership are in agreement that we need to be very fair and considerate of those registered for the conference, as well as business members and vendors, in how we handle refunds. We will share that information early next week.
We have spoken with The Lodge of Four Seasons and they will not charge for individuals or groups who have secured rooms and there will be no cancellation charge. If you have prepaid, you will receive reimbursement. You will receive an email from the Lodge confirming the cancelation. Do not call the Lodge of Four Seasons to cancel.
The following hotels will also honor cancellations with no charge; however, if you have booked a room with them, you must call to cancel within the next three days:
Camden on the Lake: (573) 365-5620
Port Arrowhead: (573) 693-9988
The Inn at Grand Glaize: (800) 348-4731
Special Note: If you booked lodging through any third party agent, you must call the hotel to verify cancellation
Further Updates Via the MASA Website
We will continue to stay in touch with our key audiences, and we will also place updated information on our website as it becomes available: www.MASAonline.org.
We know that all of you are doing your very best during this difficult time. Please know that if MASA or MOSPRA may be of service, please contact us.
Thank you for registering for the 2020 MASA/MOSPRA Spring Conference. As you know, the conference has been cancelled as a precautionary measure due to the current Coronavirus (COVID 19) situation.
We want you to know we will issue a refund check to your school district for all those from your school district who had registered and paid for the conference prior to March 13th. Full conference registration fees will be refunded. The refund check will sent to your school district office and accompanied by a summary of all payments (name, registration information, form of payment and total) included in the reimbursement check.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional information regarding the cancellation of the conference. We appreciate your ongoing support of MASA in these unusual times. We are here to help; call on us at any time.
