GEMS Global Office:
In light of the social distancing recommendations, the GEMS staff is currently working remotely. They are set up and able to answer phones, respond to emails, and process orders. We acknowledge that this is a unique arrangement, so thank you for your grace. We’ll re-evaluate our office staffing plan over the coming weeks and keep you posted with updates.
GEMS encourages every club to listen to federal and local government guidelines and recommendations. Club leaders, watch for an email with free resources to stay connected to your GEMS girls during this unique, unprecedented situation.
GEMS Sponsored Events:
GEMS CONFERENCE 2020 HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL JULY 28 – AUGUST 1, 2021. Wheaton College has cancelled all events on their campus through the end of July for the protection of all employees, guests, speakers, and vendors. We understand the weighty decision that Wheaton had to make and are grateful for, and respect, this difficult decision. Unfortunately, this means Conference 2020 will not occur this summer, as planned. We have made plans with Wheaton to host Conference 2021 at Wheaton College.
Watch for more details about an interactive, online experience! We remain committed to providing leaders with ALL the tools, resources, and community needed to mentor girls and begin their GEMS seasons.
At this time, plans for our 2020 GEMS Golf Open on June 8, continue to move forward. As information comes to light that potentially elevates the risk to participants, or if meeting or travel bans are extended, we will reassess and communicate new plans. The safety and health of attendees is our priority!
