ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS
We have all been looking forward to the Council’s 46th Annual Conference, “Education for Transportation Professionals” and the awesome program that has been planned. The Council had been hopeful that the situation with the Coronavirus would have improved enough to go forward with the Conference at the end of April, but that does not appear to be happening. We are receiving notifications from folks that had planned to attend, as well some of the moderators and panelists for the educational sessions, that they will be unable to attend because their companies have banned “non-essential” travel and attendance at conferences for indefinite periods. Added to this are the possibilities of quarantines, flight cancellations and other closures outside of our control.
Clearly the health and safety of attendees and participants must come first. Although this is one of the most difficult decisions that the Council has had to make in our forty-six years of successful conferences, we have no choice and regretfully must cancel the Conference.
The Board of Directors is considering (pending of course on when the rate of infection will drop off, when new vaccines will be available and when the scare will be behind us), the possibility of rescheduling the Conference in September and we have tentatively reserved September 9/28/20 – 9/30/20 with the Doubletree by Hilton at SeaWorld.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE SITUATION AND WILL KEEP EVERYONE ADVISED AS TO OUR PLANS TO RE-SCHEDULE THE CONFERENCE IN SEPTEMBER.
