COVID-19 & League Events

Like you, the League of WI Municipalities has been following the rapidly-evolving news about COVID-19. Our priority is your safety and well-being. Decisions whether to hold, cancel or postpone League events will be made with that priority as our number-one concern. 

Because of the increased risk of contracting coronavirus (COVID-19) in a large-group setting of more than 10 people, and following the recommendations of the CDC and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, we are taking the following actions for upcoming League of WI Municipalities events:

Building Inspectors Institute Postponed: April 15-17, 2020 at Lake Lawn Resort, Delavan, WI.  This program is being postponed.  When a new date has been determined we will send notifications via email, the League website & the League Facebook page.  All registrations for this program will be cancelled and a refund will apply for those paid in full.  Attendees should call the hotel directly at 800-338-5253 to cancel their reservation.

League’s Local Gov 101 Workshops - three programs were scheduled for May and one on June 5th.  We will be providing these as webinars and will post information when we have it.  

Decisions about the June programs, which include the Clerks, Treasurers & Finance Officers Institute and the Municipal Attorneys Institute will be made with health and safety in mind. We will provide information when we have it.  

Updated cancellation policy: If you feel you cannot attend a League event due to concerns about the Coronavirus, we understand and have amended our cancellation policy. We will provide full refunds for any registered attendee who cancels their registration because of COVID-19 concerns. We just ask that you let us know in advance. All event cancellations should be sent via email to tkern@lwm-info.org. Hotel cancellations should be done directly with the hotel.
