Conference Cancelled Due to Weather Concerns
added February 8th, 2013
I'm very sorry to inform you that Ramapo College is closing today at
noon and we must cancel the LGBTQA Leadership Conference. I understand
how very disappointing it is to have the conference cancelled twice
now and I share your disappointment. I know that many people were
looking forward to this conference, but it is more important to keep
everyone safe in the hazardous conditions we are expecting.
If you know of someone who planned to attend who did not register
please pass this information along to them.
Stay safe and warm all.
-Kat McGee, J.D
