WYOGA 2020 Annual Convention: CANCELLED

Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, the WYOGA Board of Directors feel that it is in the best interest of our members, guests and dignitaries to CANCEL the convention. The CDC recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in- person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S.

If you reserved a sleeping room at the Ramkota, please contact them at 307.266.6000 to cancel your room.

For those who have pre-registered, your check will be returned to you. If you paid with a credit card, your card has not been charged and your registration form will be shredded for safety measures.

The WYOGA Board of Directors has scheduled the 2021 Annual Convention for April 8-10 in Casper. Please mark your calendar to attend.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
