2020 Summer Conference COVID Update

After much deliberation and careful study of the survey responses, the Board has determined to alter the format for the 2020 Summer Conference from in-person to a virtual one-day option instead. Planning for this virtual conference option is still in the early stages and more information will be coming your way.

For now, those that have:

  • already booked their rooms, please go ahead and cancel your reservations. There should be no penalty for your cancellation of those rooms.
  • registered for the conference previously, hang tight, and we will get back to you shortly. We still need to determine how best to re-deploy registration and cost.
  • been planning sessions, continue working with Brian per his e-mail messages
  • contributed to our organization as sponsors, continue working with Stephen per his e-mail messages

Thank you all so much for what you do. We know this is a difficult time for all your shops as you may be scrambling to revisit your budgets. We are sad that we will not be able to meet in Atlantic Beach this summer, but we will create an awesome opportunity for our members in July virtually, continuing our role as a premier local government association in North Carolina.

Please send any questions about the cancellation or virtual conference to Paarth. He will compile and send an FAQ by Wednesday, April 22.

We hope you, your friends, family, and colleagues continue washing hands, staying at home, and keeping in good spirits!
