The WPPA’s 88th Annual Convention

2020 Convention Canceled

March 19, 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic facing our state and nation, the WPPA’s upcoming convention April 25-26 has been canceled.

Attendees will need to cancel their reservations with the Kalahari Resort. For the next couple of weeks while the Kalahari is closed, there will be a skeleton crew; therefore, wait times might be increased. The Kalahari will be refunding your deposit and has agreed to waive the $30 cancellation fee.

Additionally, we will return convention registration fees in the same manner in which they were paid; this will occur within the next week. As such, no further action is required in order to receive those refunds.

Once we have a greater sense of certainty about the future, we intend to make alternate arrangements to celebrate our 2020 service award winners.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope all of you stay safe and healthy.

Save the date for next year’s convention: May 1-2, 2021.
