The last few months have been challenging causing schools and businesses to be closed, concerts to be cancelled, and sporting events to be postponed. After working closely with our business partners, sponsors, and the Casa Marina we have decided to postpone PHIP’s Annual Meeting of the Minds 2020.
We have done this out of a great abundance of caution for our members, performers, and all the volunteers that make this event so amazing. This decision was not easy but we felt it was necessary. There is currently too much uncertainty surrounding precautions that will be needed in the future and the possible resurfacing of the Covid-19 virus that might happen later this year.
As the window to cancel the event was closing, making the decision now will allow Parrot Heads in Paradise and PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds to flourish in the future. Also, it will allow you to cancel any travel plans you have already made.
You will receive a refund of your registration for the event by July 31, 2020. Please bear in mind it will take some time to process all of the refunds and get them to you.
You can rest assured that we will do everything possible to make next year a celebration to remember. We appreciate your understanding and trust that we are doing what is in the best interest of everyone involved.
