In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the CSI Flint Hills Chapter of the North Central Region has decided not to proceed with the 2020 CSI North Central Region Conference on the scheduled dates of April 29 – May 2, 2020.
We have been closely monitoring the information and advisories from city, county and state officials, in addition to those from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Your health, safety and welfare are paramount, and we feel that this is the responsible action to take to minimize the risk to all concerned.
Discussions are ongoing as to whether the conference can or will be rescheduled at a later time, but a decision has not yet been made in that regard. We will keep you all informed of this decision as we track the pandemic’s impact on our industry and the world. Once a determination is made on whether the conference will be rescheduled or cancelled, we will be sending more specific information on refunds of registrations, exhibitor fees, and sponsorships. If you have made travel and/or hotel reservations for the dates of April 29 – May 2, 2020, please cancel those reservations.
The Region will also be reaching out to all members in the coming days with information on the Annual Meeting, President-Elect Training, and other Region content that was planned for the conference.
Thanks to all of you for supporting CSI. Please stay safe.
