Here we are again with an announcement that I’m sure you anticipated would be made. With the recent travel bans, meeting size bans, business shutdowns, etc. we will move forward with hosting a virtual meeting. We believe these steps will provide a level of safety for our members that is not possible in a face to face setting. It is heartbreaking that we will not see each other, celebrate each other, or network with each other in person, but we can still be together in spirit!
The Executive Board held a meeting last night to get things rolling in order to make the virtual meeting a success. At this point we have already had several speakers confirm that they are willing to provide virtual webinars for their agenda topics, including our keynote speaker, Brian Wagner! The Member Engagement committee is also actively making efforts to personally contact speakers and offer assistance.
As we know more about the content, structure, and logistics of the virtual meeting, we will continue to update the membership. At this point, our goal is to be able to offer you upwards of 30+ CEs, but this is dependent on the feedback received from our speakers. The in-person meeting would only allow for 19.5 CEs.
The Executive Board is looking at this crisis as an opportunity to rise above and still be able to provide for our members. We hope you will join us for this new and exciting adventure of utilizing the technology at our fingertips in order to overcome and sustain during this trying time.
The theme for this year’s meeting is 70 YEARS STRONG… Leading the Vision. To which your Board says, ABSOLUTELY!!
