UCPPE BOA UPDATES
Good Evening Fellow Courtiers,
On behalf of the Board of Advisers this is an update on Coronation 45.
As we are now in the 5th month of the COVID-19 pandemic and with November’s quarantine situation being very uncertain, after much consideration the BOA has decided to post pone Coronation until 2021. This comes as a disappointment to us all.
However, this move will allow the current reign to reschedule its required state events when they can safely be held. The BOA to plan campaign session as well as put into place a plan of action for future reigns should they find themselves in this position in the future.
In the meantime, we are working closely with our host hotel and venue to ensure that all social distancing and safety concerns are observed as needed when Coronation is held. We will discuss further details with our council of regents during the annual Regents Meeting 09/13/2020 at Club Q.
