House of Delegates

Volunteer Leaders Shaping Policy

The CANP board of directors cancelled this year's House of Delegates (HOD), scheduled for May 11, 2020, in response to Governor Newsom’s Executive Order directing all Californians shelter in place due to COVID-19, as well as the latest information from international, federal and local governments.

It was also decided due to the interest of the health, safety, and well-being of our members, delegates, and staff – it was most appropriate to cancel this event.

Individuals registered to serve as a delegate will receive specific information about the next steps within the next week.

See the Questions and Answers below for additional information on the cancellation.

Will the HOD be postponed until a later date or rescheduled?

No. The board elected to have HOD resume in the next biennial year, in the year 2022. For the delegates of the HOD, you will be sent detailed information about the cancellation, including participation in the CANP board of director’s election process.

What about CANP's 2020 Board of Directors elections?

Elections will be held via U.S. mail and delegates will have the opportunity to vote as they would if the HOD were taking place.

Will delegates be refunded for hotel costs?

Delegates will not be refunded for hotel costs. Delegates must cancel their hotel reservation as soon as possible by contacting their hotel directly and cancel reservations at the Citizen Hotel within 48 hours of scheduled arrival. The Citizen Hotel’s phone number is (916) 447-2700.

Will delegates be refunded for airline tickets?

Delegates will not be refunded for airline tickets. Many airlines have already alerted passengers regarding new policies to cancel and refund flights without penalty or receive a credit for flight reservations. Delegates will need to call their airline carrier to speak directly with their team about booking.
