Online Evaluation Form

Statement from the WITEA Board:

While WITEA understands that individuals and districts have the right to self-cancel in this tough situation we all face, we have generously extended our cancellation cutoff date to March 11 at 4 p.m. Currently there is no case of COVID-19 in Chelan County.

We hope that you understand that WITEA made commitments for food and venues, while the conference cancellation fee provided in our policy prior to today’s cutoff covers a dues payment there are other fixed costs we cannot get out of and are obliged to pay.

In getting to this position the WITEA officers in consultation with our insurance carrier’s policy of “…if people cancel registrations at this time it is because “they choose to” and not because the CDC and/or local government agencies have declared an outbreak and prohibits travel to Wenatchee.”

For physical items such as the robots WITEA will not be able to refund districts that signed up for those sessions and will be sending along any physical items (i.e., robots, etc.) committed to by districts.

Finally, we hope all in involved understand that we are all in this together and need to support each other when we can!

WITEA Board

The WITEA Spring Conference is going on as planned. WITEA is carefully monitoring the evolution of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Washington State via guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control. We are following guidelines for in-person interaction from the CDC and have implemented additional measures based on the composition of our event (i.e., no handshaking, etc.) during the spring conference this week. The decision to attend or not attend belongs to individuals, schools, and school districts. If directed by the local Health Department, Washington Department of Health, City of Wenatchee, and/or the Centers for Disease Control to cancel the conference, we would immediately follow the directive and communicate to stakeholders. In the event a cancellation of the conference happens, the WITEA Board would determine next steps for all concerned. WITEA will charge a $100 cancellation fee for the main conference for those cancelling by 4 p.m. on March 11. For pre-con sessions, there is an additional $100 cancellation fee; except for RC Aircraft is a $300 cancellation fee (you will still receive kit), and there will be no refunds at all for VEX 5 Robotics (your district will still receive the robot). No refunds will be given after 4 p.m. on March 11 and purchase orders will be billed at the full amount. Please email taa@wa-acte.org to cancel. The Coast Hotel had a glitch in their system and it is now corrected.  If you have concerns regarding your room reservation, please call 509-662-1234.
