Please RSVP for Nov. 18-19 Delta Conference by Zoom

Posted on October 29, 2021 at 10:19 AM

We will move forward with doing the best conference we can by Zoom. Due to the pandemic, people who are sick or are at high risk and don’t want to travel, as well as some other illnesses, this was already going to be mostly by Zoom and we cancelled the Arkansas Capitol session weeks ago.

Here is the link that you will need to highlight, copy and paste–it is not a direct link itself:

We have discussed why it would not make any sense at this point to convene in the expensive Clinton Library Great Hall when most people are tuning in by Zoom. We hope people understand this situation, but on the other hand we are an older, higher-risk group so it is not surprising. The trend has been overwhelmingly toward Zoom for quite a while now.

We first started organizing this conference in the late spring and early summer when most people thought the pandemic would be greatly reduced by Nov. 18-19. We doubt that many people thought it would continue to be this serious at this late date.

Nov. 18-19 will also likely be the flu season in addition to the Coronavirus, along with the start of cold weather.

Delta Caucus Director Lee Powell had some health concerns but is recovering well. We have had a number of other illnesses either from Covid or other problems.

Most people were going to take part by Zoom anyway. For the group hotel reservations at this point, we have Lee Powell and two other people.

Please continue to RSVP by Zoom. We will send that contact information over shortly before the event.

Please RSVP to Lee Powell by email if you would like to tune in at

Thursday opening session, Nov. 18 from 4:50 p.m. to 6:50 p.m. by Zoom

Friday Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. to about 12:45 by Zoom

We regret this but we have no choice.

We have a strong line-up of speakers and it will be a constructive, informative meeting.

We are going to continue to function by Zoom as long as the pandemic continues to be a problem. Thanks. Lee Powell, Executive Director, Delta Caucus (202) 360-6347
