RMPA 2020 Yearbook Pre-Order

While we are disappointed in the circumstances that forced the cancellations of our 2019-2020 season, we know the biggest loss lies with our Seniors and age-outs.  We know that nothing can make up for the experience of performing and the relationships formed through the participation in this activity.  However, we do know that the friendships and connections made throughout the season can last well beyond any given season.

We are very happy and excited to announce that we will be able to offer an RMPA season yearbook for the 2020 season!  The yearbook will be a celebration of the 2020 season and our Senior members as well as age-outs.  The yearbook is currently available for pre-order on the recently launched  RMPA Marketplace

SENIORS/AGE-OUTS - please complete the 2020 RMPA Yearbook Senior/Age-Out Photo Upload form by Sunday, April 19th to be featured.

Boosters/Parents/Business - advertisements and shoutouts are available for purchase on the RMPA marketplace as well. All of the ads are being sold for half price from 2019, $10 for half-page and $25 for a whole-page. Ad space is available to be purchased on the RMPA Marketplace.

Age-Outs: 
RMPA will be honoring the additional year of eligibility for contracted independent ensemble age-out performers at the time of season cancellations in 2020.  If you think this may be your last year regardless please feel free to submit your photo for recognition either way. If you march next year you can still be featured.

RMPA 2020 Season Cancelled

Hello RMPA Friends and Families,

After reviewing the social distancing recommendations of the CDC, WHO, as well as local health officials, the RMPA Board of Directors has voted unanimously to suspend all remaining events for the 2020 season. This decision was not made lightly but the priority is, and always has been, the health and well-being of all those in our organization. As well, CHSAA has suspended all activities in the state so RMPA is not able to pursue completing the season via an online platform.

We are deeply saddened by the recent developments, but understand that as a community we have a responsibility to not only care for ourselves but for those around us. The RMPA Board of Directors is made up of volunteer instructors who are deeply invested in the activity. The students we teach, their health and safety, as well as the health and safety of our local communities absolutely comes first. RMPA is committed to being part of the effort to flatten the curve to save lives and we applaud efforts throughout the state and the country to do just that. 

We thank you for your patience and understanding and we wish all of you the best of health as we continue to navigate this historic and unprecedented situation. 

Be safe and please take care of one another.

Sincerely,

-RMPA Board of Directors

The RMPA Board of Directors will be meeting on the evening of March 11th to determine the best course of action for the remainder of the season, with the well being of our membership as the first priority. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through this very difficult situation, and will send out an update tomorrow evening (March 12th).
