IAMPETH has cancelled their July 2020 Convention in Atlanta. Here is an excerpt from their cancelation letter:
Dear Friends,
In this strange and challenging time of COVID-19, many of us have been looking forward to the camaraderie of our annual gathering after a long period of social isolation and loss. Hoping for some clear resolution to the pandemic crisis in time for our Atlanta conference in July, we have been monitoring the situation closely. Sadly, we find the uncertainties still too great for us to proceed responsibly. With the health, safety and comfort of our attendees as our most important considerations, the Executive Board has made the difficult decision to cancel our 71st annual conference.

BUT...leave the light on for us, Atlanta! I'm delighted to report we have booked the same hotel for the week of July 11-16, 2022, and all of the 2020 faculty have been invited to join us there! We regret we are not able to roll over registrations from this year, but when the time comes, we hope you will sign up again in 2022.

For those who are registered to attend, your conference and meal fees (less a $10 PayPal fee) will automatically be returned to you. This is a big job for our volunteer Treasurer, so please be patient and keep an eye out for your refund, which may take a month or so to appear in your account (or mailbox). All room reservations will be cancelled by the hotel. If you had planned to fly to Atlanta, please check with your carrier, since many airlines have become more lenient with cancellation and rescheduling policies....

As ever,
Jody Meese
IAMPETH President 2019-2020
