SESSIONS BY THE SEA, P.O. Box 23 Denton, MD 21629

Letter from SESSIONS Chairperson to Intergroups:

It is with a heavy heart that the SESSIONS committee must inform your, respective, lntergroups of the cancellation of SESSIONS BY THE SEA – 2020. In compliance with our Governors order that participants MUST be socially distance (6 foot apart) we find that OCEAN CITY CONVENTION CENTER cannot meet our needs. They wanted to move the convention down stairs to the exhibit hall. That may meet the Governor’s orders. However, we hold SESSIONS to a higher degree. About 2006 we tried holding a meeting down stairs and found it  to be unsatisfying.  With the infusion of $3,000 from  SESSIONS we could not get the acoustics to measure up. A lot of our registrants came to me (then) and complained about the quality of the meeting. Most said “do not hold another meeting in the exhibition hall” because it was very disappointing. We, the SESSIONS committee, agree with them.

We expect to be back in 2021 as strong as ever. Do not abandon us.

At the present time it would be appreciated if each Intergroup would pass the word about our cancellation, this year. If possible, post on your respective websites. If need be you may post this letter. Let registrants know they will be receiving a 100% refund of their money. However, it will be about September 10th  before they will be mailed out.  I need to  write out and sign more than 700 checks.  All will be mailed out the same day so that I don’t get calls about their friends receiving their check last    week while some checks have not been mailed out.
