At this time, it is our intention to host an in-person conference, however, we intend to provide some opportunities allowing attendees to participate virtually if they choose. For the safety of our guests, we will incorporate any necessary safety precautions recommended by public health professionals and government entities. In the event circumstances surrounding COVID restrict/limit an in-person conference, we may explore a fully virtual option. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated.
