BLETís 2020 Cincinnati regional meeting postponed

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, May 28 ó The BLET National Division is postponing its Cincinnati, Ohio, regional meeting that was originally scheduled for August 17-21, 2020. The postponement is due to the continuing, widespread restrictions on movement and travel 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 those who may have already made hotel or meeting reservations will be contacted in the coming days regarding a refund.

On April 21, the BLET announced that it would postpone its Milwaukee regional meeting for the same reasons. That meeting was originally scheduled for June 22-26. The National Division is also 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.

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 updates.
