Dear Brother and Sister Hibernians:
Today, [June 2, 2020] we have the unfortunate responsibility to notify all members of the AOH and LAOH that the 2020 national convention will move to a virtual convention due to COVID-19. The health and safety of our membership is the reason for this change. Details of both the AOH and the LAOH virtual convention will follow as plans are finalized.
Please DO NOT contact the Rosen Centre Hotel to cancel your reservations. All reservations will be automatically canceled and you will receive a cancellation confirmation email. If by some chance you do not receive a cancellation confirmation by the end of next week, you may contact the hotel as a follow-up.
The AOH and LAOH National Boards and membership wish to thank the local convention committee and the Rosen Centre hotel staff for their great work preparing for this convention. It is our hope that we can be in Orlando in 2024 to complete what we began four years ago.
Please do not contact the Convention committee. Refunds for packages will begin to process immediately. If you do not receive information on your refund by the end of next week you may contact the convention committee directly.
The challenge presented to us today includes opportunities for continued success of both the AOH and LAOH. We anticipate participation from delegates virtually who would otherwise not be able to participate in the 2020 AOH LAOH national convention. We look forward to a successful and historic convention as we go virtual for the first time.
James F. McKay, AOH National President and Carol Sheyer, LAOH National President
