2020 Workamper Rendezvous Event Cancelled...
We so wish we didn't have to post this notice as we very much look forward to the Rendezvous event each year. October is a beautiful time to be in Arkansas, and it's so wonderful to get to meet fellow Workampers in-person, learn from each other, and make new friends.
But, after careful consideration and consultation with our staff, local businesses, and the folks at the Heber Springs Community Center - we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Workamper Rendezvous in-person event, scheduled for October 17-23 in Arkansas.
Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our members and supporters. But we know it's the right decision based on the information we have today.
We had hoped that things would settle down and be back to normal by October, but with the number of reported cases increasing every day and state government regulations limiting the number of people allowed in public spaces to 25% capacity, it unfortunately seems that this "new normal" is going to be sticking around longer than we had originally hoped.
We hope you will be able to join us in 2021! Planning for next year will begin later this year and we'll keep you posted on that.
To your good health and well-being,
