The Association of Village Council Presidents will once again hold its annual convention virtually this year. The AVCP executive board chose the virtual option because of high COVID-19 case counts in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, according to a statement from the tribal non-profit. The Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation recommends no large gatherings due to the high transmission rates of the disease across the region.

The AVCP annual convention is scheduled for Sept. 22. The tribal non-profit also held its 2020 annual convention virtually due to public health precautions during the pandemic.
