Greetings members, vendors, and speakers,
The SAT & MATT boards and meeting hosts have been working hard behind the scenes to address the COVID-19 issues that we are all facing. Considering the current status of various agencies and vendors with travel restrictions and the newest CDC recommendation of no gatherings of 50 people or more, the boards of each organization have decided to cancel our upcoming joint meeting in Kansas City.
Our hope is that the cancellation notification will allow people the time needed to cancel hotel and air reservations and allow agency managers to use these budgeted training funds towards a future meeting or class.
The board will still need a bit more time to sort out some of the details. The Sunshine-Wong travel award and James C. Garriott travel grant and other items will be discussed. Information about refunds for people who have registered for the Kansas City meeting through Event Bright will be sent out later. We ask people to be patient while we work through their questions.
We regret to have to cancel our first chance to meet with our neighboring regional association and we thank each of our host representatives for all the hard work that they have done in preparing for this meeting. Our hope is that we will get a chance to meet together in the future.
