To all California local branches,

Due to the strength and second wave of COVID-19, the California State convention has once again been rescheduled. The new dates are November 19 and 20, 2021. There will also be a full day of training on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The location will remain the same: Wyndham Bayside in San Diego.

A new link for making the November 2021 reservations will be provided by the hotel in the near future. In addition, a new convention call will go out to the branches in the Spring of 2021. I apologize for any inconvenience that these changes are causing.

It goes without saying that these are extraordinary times filled with challenges and disappointments. But, once again, letter carriers have risen to the occasion and have proven how vital they are to our nation. A recent Harris Poll lists the USPS number one, out of one hundred, as the most essential companies during the pandemic. I am proud and honored to serve as your State President.

In solidarity,

Harold Kelso
