Thank you for your RSVP to BEA’s Gathering on Martha’s Vineyard. We regret to inform you that, due to the rising infections of the COVID-19 Delta variant even among vaccinated people, we are canceling this year’s signature event scheduled for this Sunday, August 8th.
We did not reach this decision lightly, but we have concluded that canceling is the only way to ensure we can keep BEA members and supporters safe.
We intend to gather this group of trailblazing leaders for a rescheduled event in the early December 2021 timeframe. In the meantime, we will closely monitor COVID developments and continue to prioritize the health and safety of BEA members and supporters consistent with relevant public health guidance in any plans we make.
We are so grateful for the support you continue to show BEA and we would like to offer you three options regarding your ticket fee:
- Credit toward the rescheduled event
- Convert the ticket fee to a donation to BEA to help defray event costs
- Receive a full refund
Please respond to Amanda Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preference and we’ll be happy to accommodate your request.
The important work BEA does would not be possible without your support, so we look forward to you remaining on this journey with us despite the challenging circumstances. We hope to see you in person once we’re sure it’s safe to convene a group of this size, and we will share details of our next event as soon as they become available.
