The USLCA staff and Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to postpone the remainder of the 2020 Regional Workshops in as a result of the rapidly changing public health situation created by coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We reached a point where we needed to make a definitive decision on if travel would be safe for speakers, staff, and attendees and feel that isn’t possible right now.
We understand this decision may come with some disappointment and recognize things might be changing locally, but because attendees and speakers would be traveling from other areas, we feel it’s in the best interest to postpone. We are hoping to be able to reschedule this series for some time in 2021.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Professional Development Coordinator, Molly Peterson at Molly.Peterson@uslca.org with any questions or concerns. We appreciate your understanding and hope to bring this workshop across the country soon!
