Dear Members & Friends:
The California Poultry Federation (CPF) Executive Committee (EC) voted unanimously to cancel the September 2020 Annual Conference. Due to Monterey County COVID-19 regulations, the Monterey Plaza Hotel is unable to provide the meeting space we need indoors for some activities. In addition, the Del Monte Golf Course also notified us that they cannot accommodate our tournament that month.
The EC feels that the responsible and safe thing to do is to cancel the conference. The meeting will be held by Zoom at 8 a.m. Friday, Sept. 18.
The Monterey Plaza Hotel will cancel all reservations automatically and a refund will be issued within the next week for any deposits taken. Please do not reach out to the hotel individually.
Regarding your registration fees and sponsorships, please contact Art in our office
(209) 576-6355. If possible, we would prefer to roll-over your sponsorship and all registration fees to next year’s conference. Any payments paid with credit card will cost the CPF 4 percent, and since this conference traditionally produces income for our budget, we appreciate not having to write-off the credit card fees. Golf fees will be refunded.
The EC sadly made these decisions; like you, we were anxious to meet and greet all of you at this very special event. We will see all of you on September 18 for our Annual Board Meeting held by Zoom. You will be receiving details of that meeting with the agenda in coming weeks.
