Conference Cancelled

Message to the Region - May 26, 2020

On behalf of the Region VI Leadership Team, we are announcing that we will no longer host our in-person 2020 Region VI Conference scheduled for November 10-12 in Lexington, KY. Considering public health concerns and economic uncertainty, we are making this difficult decision now in order to plan for alternative virtual offerings while also safeguarding Region VI financial resources.

While our team was looking forward to convening in-person, we have been continuously evaluating the best ways to serve the region as our community continues to adapt to an everchanging landscape. Our regional leadership team remains committed to connecting with our community and look forward to sharing more information about future offerings soon.

At the moment, we are no longer accepting proposal submissions as we regroup for the remainder of the year. We want to thank our proposal submitters, exhibitors, and volunteers for their contributions and support of the conference up to this point, and for their understanding. If you submitted a proposal or purchased a booth/sponsorship, you'll receive a separate communication from our team.

Again, thank you for your continued support and please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,
Seth Hall
Region VI Chair
