Dear NA Members,
On March 16, 2020, due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus), Maryland’s Governor Larry Hogan prohibited social gatherings of more than 10 people in accordance with guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In accordance with this prohibition, the Board of the Chesapeake and Potomac Region of Narcotic Anonymous, Inc. has cancelled the upcoming Chesapeake and Potomac Regional Convention of Narcotics Anonymous (CPRCNA) scheduled for April 17-19, 2020.
Rescheduling this year’s convention to a later date is not feasible as it would coincide with Ocean City’s peak summer season. The increased cost for accommodations and related expenses would be too expensive for our members during that time.
We hope you and your families are healthy and safe. We appreciate your continued support of CPRCNA and look forward to seeing you at next year’s convention in April 2021.
Please refer to the Convention Oversight Committee’s (COC) frequently asked questions for additional information.
In loving service,
Board of Directors
Chesapeake and Potomac Region of Narcotics Anonymous, Inc.
