Spring Symposium is Canceled
It is with great regret to report that we have decided to cancel this year’s 2020 Spring Symposium. Our Board-level Planning Committee looked at several scenarios, and each one led us to the conclusion that having 175 people clustered at the David Brower Center by June or July would not be prudent or possibly even permitted by the state and local authorities by then. We decided to rather focus our efforts on a more robust Fall Conference that will allow us to better plan for an appropriate location and prepare an agenda that is responsive to the times and looks to the future. In the meantime, the Planning Committee is looking at organizing a series of webinars over the summer that will be specific to the COVID-19 situation and address how our industry will play a vital role in rebuilding California’s economy. Stay tuned for more developments on this front. In the meantime, CEDMC staff will be reaching out to those of you who registered for the Symposium to issue full refunds.
