2021 RIPEA 30TH ANNUAL CONVENTION IS CANCELED!!!!
In view of the changed COVID-19 and Delta Variant situation with the low vaccination rate in Indiana, the RIPEA Executive Committee has canceled the 2021 convention. It was done for the following reasons:
- When the board approved the 2021 Convention, COVID-19 appeared to be on its way to much lower infections and hospitalization. The situation is now much worse. More dire, as of today, only 50% of Indiana residents have been fully vaccinated with many older adults included in this number.
- The most important reason for the cancellation is for the protection of all registrants, staff and volunteers.
- In the words of one Executive Committee Member, we don’t want to bring over 200 registrants, staff and volunteers from all over Indiana to what could become a “super spreader” event.
Please contact the RIPEA office with any concerns or questions about this at (800) 345-9214
or (317) 789-0244.
