PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF CHANGE IN TIME, VENUE AND SCHEDULE! READ BELOW!

DUE TO LOW SPONSORSHIP THIS YEAR ALL EVENTS HELD AT THE DETROIT RIVERSIDE HOTEL HAVE BEEN CANCELED AND WCCCD HAS DECIDED NOT TO ASSIST US EITHER BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THE VENUE WOULD REFLECT NEGATIVELY TO THEIR ORGANIZATION. (Their words not mine).

THURSDAYS EVENT WILL BE SCHEDULED AT THE SAME TIME BUT AT A NEW LOCATION  AND FRIDAYS AWARDS DINNER HAVE BEEN RESCHEDULED TO SATURDAY.

SATURDAYS EVENT HAS BEEN RE-LOCATED WITH VARIOUS TIMES AND WE REALLY APOLOGIZE FOR THIS.

  PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF THIS CHANGE IN VENUE AND SCHEDULE!

AS OF THIS MOMENT, THE SATURDAY LOCATION IS STILL TO BE DETERMINED. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE CONFUSION, BUT STAY TUNED TO THIS SITE FOR MORE DETAILS.

Please do not view this as mis-management, mis-organization or such, but as your chairperson making it happen no matter what happens. We appreciate your kind words of encouragement and offers of assistance in this matter. 

PLEASE VIEW THE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS FOR MORE DETAILED INFORMATION BUT WAIT FOR LOCATION INFORMATION TO BE UPDATED AGAIN.
