After much thought and deep concerns for the satiety for everyone, we the board have made the decision to cancel the MBA 2020 Convention. The board will be making arrangements on how to proceed with the auction items and other donations. Anyone who has already purchased their banquet tickets and made room reservations will need to call Fairmont to cancel their room reservations. We will be in touch with those who purchased banquet tickets to make arrangements for a refund. Claudia will be in touch for those arrangements. Everyone will receive their election ballots in the mail that will have to be returned to our Helena address in the envelope we provide. As your president I am deeply sorry for this cancellation of the 2020 banquet. The Billings crew put a lot of hard work in putting it together. I will have updates as we organize our thoughts. SO VERY SORRY for this bad news.
