MEMO FULL TEXT:
Given the current state of affairs with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and out of an abundance of caution, the New York City District Council of Carpenters Training Center has decided to postpone the 51st Annual Graduating Apprentice Exhibits and Open-House (scheduled for April 7th) We will continue to monitor the situation closely and evaluate a possible re-schedule of the event.
The safety and health of our visitors, employees, members, and participants is our top priority. The leadership of the District Council and the Training Fund Board of Trustees have been in conversation with many of our business partners, and we know that many companies are also having to adjust their business practices, including policies on travel, meetings and events. We have heard from you that many of our member participants have expressed concern about traveling, being in public spaces during these uncertain times.
Given that, we felt it best to be pro-active and postpone the Open-House at this time. I know this raises a lot of questions for our affiliates. My staff will be in touch with you to communicate information and help address issues that arise due to this decision.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Director of Training
