Dear LIWOCA 2020 Attendee, Sponsor, and/or Speaker:
As you may have heard, the World Health Organization has now officially declared COVID-19 to be a pandemic. In light of this development, the LIWOCA Board has decided to postpone the upcoming LIWOCA 2020 Conference and Gala, which was set to occur March 18-20, 2020 in Atlanta, GA. All 2020 Conference sponsorships and associated benefits will be honored and recognized at the time the Conference is re-scheduled, which we hope will be in 2020 and, if not then, in 2021. We will also honor any attendees’ paid registration fees for the Conference, which will be applied in full to the re-scheduled date, without any deductions or penalties. All speakers will be contacted, once a new date is determined.
Finally, for some good news--despite the postponement of the 2020 conference, LIWOCA is committed to its scholars and we are excited to share that we will be awarding scholarships to the following law students:
Boston University School of Law, 3L
University of Pennsylvania Law School, 2L
Temple University Beasley School of Law, 2L
DePaul University College of Law 2L
Please remember to cancel your hotel bookings, if any at The Ritz, by this Friday, March 13th, so as to not incur any late cancellation penalties, as the Ritz-Carlton is aware of our postponement.
Many thanks to all of you for your support in our journey.
Be well and hope to see you all in the not too distant future!
President & Chair of LIWOCA 2020
Marian Cover Dockery
CEO and Founder of LIWOCA
