2020 Craftsmanship Awards

3/12 - 10:30 AM

We have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation over the past week and the potential impact on the WBC Craftsmanship Awards banquet scheduled for Friday, March 13. The situation in our region has changed dramatically in the last 24 hours. As a result, we believe it is in the best interests of our attendees and their families to postpone the event.

Yesterday, DC Mayor Bowser placed the District under a state of emergency and issued an advisory recommending all “nonessential mass gatherings” of 1,000 or more people be postponed or canceled through March 31. The WBC awards banquet has over 1,000 attendees. Maryland Governor Hogan also canceled all travel for state employees and advised all state agencies to prepare employees for telework in order to stop the spread of the virus.

We appreciate your confidence in Washington Building Congress and look forward to a successful rescheduled 2020 Craftsmanship Awards banquet. We are currently working on a new date and will announce when confirmed.

Please call the WBC if you have any questions.
