CANCELLATION OF DEPARTMENT MINI CONVENTION
Due to circumstances beyond our control we are cancelling the Mini Convention for the Department of NJ. The reason behind this is Gov. Murphy’s Order on General Gatherings. It states that gatherings can only be at 25% of rooms capacity or 25 people whichever is less.
This means that we would only be able to have 25 members at the convention to include the Department staff. We decided that it would be best to cancel now rather than wait and hope that the Governor changes this and then possibly changes it back due to an uptick in COVID cases which we have seen before. Because of this change we will be holding elections via email.
PDC Tony Modzelewski and PDC Doug Ratazzi will be running the Department Elections and will be sending all Department Staff and Detachment Commandants an email no later than October 1, 2020 with specific Instructions in accordance with Marine Corps League, Inc. 2020 Emergency Plan for Elections and Installations MCL League Departments. A copy is attached. Any and all monies that were sent to the Department for Delegates will be sent back to the Detachments..
