We believe that you all have all been following the news regarding
expanding closures due to concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus.  The N&W
Historical Society Board of Directors is closely monitoring this rapidly
developing situation in order to determine how to proceed regarding our
upcoming convention in Cleveland, Ohio, subject to prevailing health
concerns and public directives that could impact our ability to meet.  The
health of our members and their families is, of course, a top priority; we
have to consider the possibility, however slim, of an attendee picking up
something here and taking it back home.

For now, we are keeping tabs on the news and communicating with the host
hotel and planned tour sites to fully assess our alternatives in light of
our already-contracted commitments.  We have not made a final decision yet,
but given the uncertainty regarding the expected duration of the health
crisis, we are thinking it may be best to reschedule our currently planned
2020 convention program for the same weekend in 2021 and have already made
tentative arrangements to support that option.  By then, we hope and pray
that the current crisis will be a distant unpleasant memory.

Once a final decision is made regarding our 2020 convention, we will
announce it immediately on this list, our website, and the Virginian
Railway Enthusiast IO list, in order to facilitate timely
confirmation/cancellation of travel plans for those planning to attend.  In
the event the convention is cancelled for 2020, the Society will issue full
refunds upon request.
