2020 USSVI National Convention CANCELLED:
In light of the current national pandemic emergency, the USSVI board of directors has voted to cancel the 2020 National Convention in Tuscon. This convention will be rescheduled for August 2023.
The BOD felt a number of uncontrollable circumstances made having the convention not in the best interest of the organization.
If you are due a refund for your convention registration, please give the convention committee time to issue checks and get those refunds in the mail.

Western Regional Roundup CANCELLED:
At a videoconference of the Western Region District Commanders held on 8/4/2020, the Commanders in attendance, along with Gene Kellar, voted unanimously to cancel the Western Region Roundup (WRR) presently scheduled for 1-6 November.
The decision was made with an abundance of caution and with the best interests of our shipmates of utmost concern. At this point, negotiations are ongoing to conduct the WRR in the March/April timeframe next year at a location TBD. For those shipmates who have made deposits for the WRR, the refunds will be processed as soon as possible.
