In light of the new health order issued by the Sacramento County Health Officer on January 6, RCRC has postponed the Annual Installation and Awards Reception to a later date. The order, which requires all public boards to meet virtually and prohibits in person meetings due to increasing COVID-19 transmission rates, also strongly encourages that other business meetings and events be conducted remotely. Unfortunately, the confluence of this new health order combined with the impact on participation meant a change was necessary. 

The reception traditionally kicks off the new year honoring the recipients of the Rural Leadership Awards and celebrating the installation of the new RCRC Officers. While this postponement is unfortunate, RCRC looks forward to celebrating later this spring with robust participation from Supervisors, Sponsors, and State Government partners.
