BLET cancels publication of 2020 Regional Meeting Program book

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, April 29 — As previously reported, the 2020 BLET regional meeting scheduled for Milwaukee, Wisc. (June 22-26) has been postponed due to ongoing travel restrictions as well as limitations on the size of gatherings due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The BLET plans to reschedule the meeting for later in the year, and is in the process of sending refunds to those who may have already paid for meeting event reservations. Due to these circumstances, the National Division also is suspending the publication of its commemorative Regional Meeting Program and golf sponsorships for 2020. Any checks submitted to the National Division will be returned as soon as practicable. If you have any questions, please contact Special Representative Matt Kronyak at kronyak@ble-t.org.

Meanwhile, the regional meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio remains scheduled for August 17-21, 2020, and the BLET regional meeting website (https://bletregionals.org) is accepting reservations. The BLET will continue to monitor the course of the pandemic, and evaluate the public health measures in place in the coming months.

Please refer to the National Division website for additional regional meeting updates.
