Why the Venue Change?


A lot of changes happened during COVID…. Portland was rescheduled twice, then canceled. Indianapolis was canceled. We were able to re-negotiate a contract with the same hotel in Indianapolis for the 2022 event.

Providence 2021 was put on hold. We were unable to re-negotiate a contract with the hotel in Providence that met our needs for a convention in 2023. Luckily, we were able to get a very good offer from the Cape Cod Hyannis Resort/Conference Center. The Steering Committee from Providence will remain the same, Kim Carlson is the Hosting Chair, and JoAnne Kelsall is her Assistant. There may be a few changes to the committee as people’s life situations may have changed. The Steering Committee is super excited to host this event at the Cape Cod Hyannis Resort/Conference Center. The area has so much to offer, and fits their “From Sea to Shining Sea” theme perfectly. The Conference Center is about 5 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the south, and about 5 miles to the beaches on Cape Cod Bay

The Steering Committee is planning a wonderful Convention, souvenirs are already purchased, Committee gifts and tote bags are prepared. Looking forward to seeing everyone in  Cape Cod, MA.
