Middle Atlantic States Conclave 1.0.0.F - New York 2020
Corning, New York
"Working Together Fraternally, Building the Future of I.0.0.F."

Currently we are all affected by the national, regional and local Corona virus pandemic crisis. Consequently, respecting the vulnerability of the majority of our brothers and sisters who were planning to attend, as well as the federal and state mandates the Jurisdiction of New York has decided to postpone the 2020 Middle Atlantic States Conclave. Conclave 2020 will now be held on July 31 to August 2, 2020 at the Radisson in Corning, located at 125 Denison Parkway East, Corning, New York.

Below are the new registration forms for Conclave 2020, as well meal reservations. The menus for all optional meals are enclosed as well. Should you decide not to join us for the prearranged meals the hotel has an in-house restaurant and there are a number of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Journal ads and entertainment registration have been extended to July 10, 2020.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this change may have created. Although our decision has been made in the best interest and the health, safety and welfare of everyone involved, we are looking forward to sharing summer in New York, and continuing the I.O.O.F. journey into the next decade. All monies received for meals and reservations will be returned ASAP. Thank you for your understanding.
