2020 Annual Convention Updates

Please note: All changes will append to this post – check back frequently for the most recent information regarding this year’s Annual Convention.

Update on Tuesday, March 24th

With the reality we all are currently facing, it is with deep sadness to announce POAM’s decision to postpone the 2020 Annual Convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our President, Jim Tignanelli, addresses this situation by sharing some of the histories of the POAM Annual Convention.

Read President Tignanelli’s letter. 

For those who have already made room reservations, please contact Amway Grand Plaza’s Group Reservation number for cancellations, (616) 776-6450.

Update on Monday, March 16th

Dear members and friends, the limitations being imposed on everyone as a response to the COVID-19 virus seem to be changing several times per day. By the time you receive this note, there may be even more changes. Our office and servicing reps are getting lots of questions regarding the 2020 POAM Convention in Grand Rapids.

As of this moment, we are proceeding towards May 20-22 in the usual manner. Mailings are going out, presentations are being prepared, and rooms are being reserved. We will continue to monitor announcements from the government(s) and the Amway Grand Hotel. If something occurs which forces a change in plans, we will post it on POAM.net and the POAM Mobile App as soon as we can. This is as good of a reason as any to download the POAM app. Do so today! Register your personal email and allow for “push notifications.”  This way, you will be alerted to the message immediately.

For those of you who generally visit us in Washington D.C. during police week, I would suggest the above narrative applies there as well.
