Launching Leaders Retreat

In light of the recommendation from the CDC that meetings of fifty attendees or more be cancelled, the designation of the COVID-19 disease as a pandemic and the announcement by the governor of Arizona declaring a public health emergency in the state, after much deliberation and careful consideration the Commission is moving forward with the postponement of the CWP Launching Leaders Retreat originally scheduled for April 30 - May 2, 2020 at the Omni Scottsdale Resort at the Montelucia. We're currently working with the hotel for a possible rebooking in the first quarter of 2021.
