2020 VOCAL Conference Cancelled

Dear Members and Friends::

Yesterday, the CDC recommended that gatherings of 50 or more occurring in the next 8 weeks be cancelled or rescheduled to help slow the spread of the virus. 

In light of this recommendation, VOCAL made the difficult decision to cancel our annual conference, scheduled for May 11-12, 2020. We know this is disappointing. The decision to cancel instead of rescheduling was made because the situation is fluid and the CDC could release new recommendations for cancelling events that would cause our rescheduled event to be cancelled.

Again, this is a difficult decision that was not made lightly. These are challenging times for us all; as individuals, as an organization, as a community, and as a country. We must be adaptable and pull together more than ever before. We will keep you up to date regarding developments for our annual meeting. If you have already registered, we will refund your money as soon as possible.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Deidre Johnson

Executive Director
