March Conference Postponed

It is with much sadness that we are announcing this, but due to the current changing health environment we have made the decision to postpone March Conference/Escape. Along with this, the AGM will also be postponed until a later date to be set by the board. The health and safety of our members, alumni, and their families is our top priority. JFAO is currently monitoring local, provincial, and national health updates and guidelines, and it is due to these factors we feel it is in the best interest of JFAO to postpone this event until a later date. All attendees will be contacted in the very near future regarding the specifics of reimbursement and the new date for this event. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.PDF download.

And it is with this in mind we are putting out this letter and suggested guidelines for the health and wellbeing of our members, our alumni, and our communities as a whole. The following are some other general guide lines that we are putting forward as suggestions from the federal, provincial, and local health units. At this time, we are asking all of our JFAO clubs consider the following guidelines: We are recommending that all JF events (I.e. club meetings, socials Etc ) be suspended and re-evaluated in three weeks time. Consider hosting digital events if possible. If using school facilities or local public facilities, follow the directives of the Ontario Ministry of Education or the local authority. Assess risk and make decisions that are in the best interest of the local club and community.… PDF download
