Message from WLCJ about Convention 2020
Earlier this week there was an emergency meeting of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism’s Board of Directors. The board has voted unanimously to change Convention 2020 in Schaumburg, Illinois, to a virtual convention on Sunday, July 12, 2020.
The WLCJ bylaws state that an election of officers must take place at a Convention. However, in light of the challenges and uncertainties facing our members and our world with the Covid-19 virus, it was felt that it may not be safe and people will not be ready to congregate at an in-person event. Hence, the virtual Convention.
This decision was not taken lightly. We are now preparing a schedule for the day, which will include the election and installation of WLCJ’s new administration, as stated in our bylaws. We will be sending out updates on the virtual convention in the coming weeks.
Please also know that anyone who has registered will get a full refund. All details will be announced shortly.
We hope to see you virtually on July 12, 2020, if not before.
Chag Sameach !
