New State Adult Education Directors and Staff -

This message is to inform you that OVAE has decided to postpone the New State Directors Workshop scheduled for October 30 – November 1, 2012, due to the safety risk posed by the forecasted impact of Hurricane Sandy to the East Coast next week.

Our logistics contractor, NOVA Research Company, has worked with the Hilton Arlington to secure space for a later date. The workshop is now scheduled for December 10-12, 2012. The hotel has agreed to automatically move your sleeping room reservations to December 9-11, 2012. You only need to contact the hotel directly (703-528-6000) if you do NOT want your room reservation changed.

We regret this late change, but trust that you understand we have reached this decision with everyone’s safety foremost in mind.
