It is a great pleasure to be your convener.
We were really excited to host you at a physical conference scheduled for May 27-29 in Pride Inn Paradise, Mombasa. However, in light of the new Covid-19 restrictions in Kenya and other East African countries that do not allow for in person meetings, the conference organizing committee has made the decision to switch to a fully virtual conference. The conference will be free for Toastmasters and guests via Zoom.
Following this switch, we have polled a number of Toastmasters who prefer for the virtual conference to be held on Friday through Sunday. We have therefore also moved the dates to May 28-30. Follow this link to register for the virtual Conference: https://cutt.ly/rcDq68b
What will this mean for TEACON 2020/2021 ticket holders? The District is working to refund the money collected for these tickets to ticket holders and refunds will be made in the month of May. All 2020/2021 ticket holders will receive specific communication on this via email.
I can understand the disappointment of not having an in-person conference in Mombasa for the second year but we trust that once the COVID situation normalizes we will be able to meet and interact again.
Thank you for your continued patience and see you all at the virtual conference.
