NEWS FROM THE NABA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We hope this note finds you, our valued NABA members and your families, safe and well during this Coronavirus crisis. Sadly, but understandably, many of the great local breweriana shows have been postponed or cancelled. As we’re sure you’ve read in the recent issues of The Breweriana Collector magazine, we have tremendous plans for this year’s NABA Convention, our 49th , in Pittsburgh PA, scheduled for July 29 Aug 1, 2020. In fact our upcoming magazine is full of news about the Convention. This includes a free commemorative tin over cardboard sign to anyone who registers before April 30.
Our Convention is about four months away, and we are cautiously optimistic that this crisis will be behind us by then and we’ll all be ready for a great breweriana convention. But we want to let you know the NABA Board of Directors will make a final decision by June 30, 2020 on whether to continue or cancel the Convention about a month in advance of its scheduled date. This will give you plenty of time to cancel your hotel reservations and for those of you who are flying, still allow you to make your travel plans (or not) well in advance.
We are still encouraging you to register for the Convention and if you do it early, you will still receive a free TOC. We are extending that deadline from April 30 to May 30 . Should we have to cancel the Convention, we will provide you with a full refund of your registration fee. In fact, we will not be cashing any checks until we make the decision on June 30 about whether to proceed.
Please check back for news about the club, and please consider registering and reserving your hotel room today, with the information contained with this note.
Thank you and we sincerely hope that you and your families stay healthy!
Your NABA Board of Directors
