2020 Fall Conference Canceled

In light of the latest updates on the COVID-19 outbreak and after much consideration by your EGSA Officers and Staff, I regret to inform you that our 2020 EGSA Fall Conference in Louisville, Kentucky scheduled for September 13-15, 2020 is officially canceled. Our priority will always be to create a safe and healthy environment for our Conference attendees and exhibitors. The conditions in Kentucky as well as in many other States continues to limit our ability to conduct our Conference safely. Current travel restrictions, quarantining requirements and the ongoing threat of protests all played a factor in our decision. Your EGSA Board of Directors and Staff all understands the value of our Conferences to our membership and your Staff is currently working on a virtual platform which will include webinars and other scheduled events. Look for more information on this soon. For those who rolled over fees from our Spring Conference, EGSA Staff will be sending a separate email to you within the next couple of business days

Like you, I am disappointed we’ll not be able to gather anytime soon. 2020 has certainly been a year to remember. Face-to-face meetings replaced with online meetings is difficult for many of us. But I encourage you to continue to make the effort to stay in touch your EGSA friends while impacting the important work of EGSA. One way you can do both is to join a Committee and attend online Committee meetings. To join a committee, please contact the Chair of the committee you are interested in and ask to be added to the roster. Your professional industry experience, insight and engagement are needed now more than ever.      

Thank you for understanding and for your continued support of EGSA. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or our Staff

EGSA 2020 President
