Let Go – Matt Miofsky event rescheduled

Dear friends,

At LeaderShift and the Chinook Winds Regional Office, we have made a decision to postpone Let Go, next week’s educational event with resource leader Matt Miofsky.  The new dates are November 17-19, 2020.

Every event and gathering of people has its own level of risk – from very low to high – so there is no single decision that affects all activities of the Region.  We have been monitoring the information and guidance from the national church, and from provincial health agencies.  As we were in the midst of discussing the upcoming event and determining its risk level, we heard from Matt Miofsky that his own congregation and city are increasing their prevention efforts, and that being present to the large staff and congregation of The Gathering right now is very important.  This information together with guidance from the WHO about slowing the spread of the virus through local risk-informed decision making led us to agree to postpone.

We were looking forward to a great event – and we still are!  We know that the postponement will affect some continuing education plans, and want you to know there will be no financial penalty if you withdraw from the rescheduled Let Go event.  Susan Lukey, Linnea Good and David Jonsson, and Matt Miofsky are all on board for the November dates – and very much looking forward to the collegiality and shared learning awaiting us at that time.

We trust that making some changes in the way we gather in the coming weeks can help us maintain a high level of health in the whole body – many of us are not in a high risk age group, but we are in contact with hundreds who are.  Our ongoing good health contributes to the health of the body. Thanks for your understanding of this commitment.

Your registration will automatically be transferred to the November event. But should you want to cancel your registration, please contact Brenda Wolff (bwolff@united-church.ca). If you have booked rooms at the hotel, please contact them directly at 1-403-984-6999.
