Due to the Coronavirus 19 the Second Annual Potomac Division Operations Saturday scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2020 has been CANCELLED.

Due to the declaration of a State of Emergency in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, and the growing concern about the spread of the Coronavirus the Potomac Division Annual meeting and Mini Con scheduled for Saturday, April 4th is cancelled.  Election of Officers will take place through a process utilizing ballots mailed to members in good standing and returned to the Election Chairman. More information will follow on the election process.
Cancellation of the Mini Con was a difficult decision to make, however, with the health and well-being of the membership in mind, the Board of Directors felt that cancellation is the best option based on the current information and direction available from various resources.
It is the intent of the Board of Directors that the Annual meeting and Mini Con will be rescheduled at a time and place to be determined when conditions permit.
Please take care of yourselves and take the precautions recommended by your local health department concerning protecting yourself from the Coronavirus.
