Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this difficult time. UAA is first and foremost a community of committed, engaged and caring individuals. We are facing a new set of challenges, but we will prevail by doing what we do best – coming together and using our collective strengths. It is in this spirit that the Governing Board and the Executive Office have come to the following decision:
Given the establishment of travel restrictions by universities and local/state/national governments, and out of great concern for the health and safety of all registered persons, the 2020 UAA Conference, scheduled for April 2-4, is cancelled. This decision is based on a careful analysis and recommendation of the Executive Office, followed by thorough discussion and a unanimous vote of the UAA Governing Board.
We realize that this is disappointing news and that there are financial implications for many of you. UAA will suffer financially due to pre-conference expenditures that cannot be recovered, as well as cancellation fees that can be imposed by the conference hotel and other contracted venues. Over the coming months, we will work hard to address and minimize the financial impacts on UAA and conference registrants. You will receive an update on these matters no later than April 1.
We care about your health and safety. Please take every precaution to stay well. We hope to see each of you next year in Nashville!
Reminder: If you have not already done so, please remember to cancel your lodging reservation.
