Statement on Conference Postponement
Email sent to all NASPA Region II Members on April 3, 2020
Dear Region II Members,
Many of you have either composed or received an email of this type in recent weeks. We regret adding another one to your inboxes. While we were optimistic that a June 2020 NASPA Region II Annual Conference in Niagara Falls would be possible this year, given recent developments of the COVID-19 global pandemic we have made a difficult decision. Unfortunately, the 2020 NASPA Region II Annual Conference in Niagara Falls has been postponed.
This decision was made following consultation with the NASPA Region II Advisory Board, Sheraton Niagara Falls, and the Conference & Event Center - Niagara Falls. We carefully considered the latest guidance available from the State of New York and the CDC to ensure that we keep our members, their families, and the dedicated hospitality professionals of Niagara Falls as safe as possible.
While we regret being unable to convene this June, we are delighted to invite you to join us in Niagara Falls in June 2021! Refund information will be made available by the end of the month for those registered for the 2020 conference. Sheraton Niagara Falls will automatically cancel 2020 hotel bookings with no penalty. We will share new conference registration and hotel booking information for 2021 in the months to come. Updates are also forthcoming for those invited to present an Educational Session at the 2020 conference.
We wish to publicly express our deep gratitude for the many months of planning by the 2020 Regional Conference Planning Committee. A postponement like this one is undoubtedly difficult to process during an already chaotic time. We thank you for your dedication to hosting an engaging and meaningful conference. We are certain that the fruits of your efforts will be well worth the wait until next year.
NASPA Region II is determined to continue serving as your professional touchstone for support throughout this crisis. We cannot wait to celebrate our successes at Niagara Falls in June 2021.
Wishing You Good Health and Strength of Spirit,
Terry Martinez, NASPA Region II Director
Danielle Weaver, 2021 NASPA Region II Conference Chair
Patricia Debertolis, 2021 NASPA Region II Conference Chair
