Due to the uncertainty of what phase level Louisiana will be and not knowing if we’ll be able to congregate as a large group, we have no choice but to make the necessary decision to cancel the 2021 PFFA of Louisiana Annual Convention scheduled for February 25th – 27th.
Protecting the health, safety and well being of our members and their families is paramount at all times to the leadership of the PFFA and especially during this Covid-19 pandemic.
Because of the need for Legislative direction we will either have a one-day mini convention, possibly in Baton Rouge or a half day Virtual Convention utilizing a web-based meeting platform such as “GoToMeeting”. Illinois recently held their state convention in this fashion.
We will keep you informed when we know more. In the meantime if any of you have booked rooms at the DoubleTree Kenner, Local-1427 President Mickey Giarrusso has instructed the hotel to cancel everyone associated with the room block. You should receive an email from the hotel within the next 24 hours verifying the cancellation, if you don’t you should contact the hotel to cancel your reservation.
At the end of the year we will still collect the names of our members who have passed away in 2020 and we will honor our members from both years separately at the 2022 Convention.
