Like a lot of Vermonters, VSEA’s Special Events Committee and Board of Trustees members were cautiously optimistic a few weeks ago that it would be possible to include an in-person option for VSEA members and retirees wanting to attend Council and/or Annual Meeting. But the recent surge in new COVID cases across Vermont caused the Committee and Board this week to cancel the in-person option and instead decide that both meetings would now be virtual-only, via Zoom.
“As your President, your health and well-being in these troubling times are my greatest concern,” explains VSEA President Aimee Towne. “I had really hoped to have a lively and fun in-person Annual Meeting at Jay Peak. Unfortunately, the rising case number for COVID throughout Vermont has caused VSEA to make the difficult decision to go to a completely virtual Annual Meeting on September 11, in order to protect your health and that of the employees of Jay Peak. I know this is disappointing, I hope we will be able to meet in person very soon. I look forward to that day very much.”
If you have already reserved a room at Jay Peak Resort please cancel it at your earliest convenience. You won’t be charged a cancelation fee if you cancel more than 72 hours prior to arrival. Thank you!
