Dear MAAWLE Members,
On behalf of the MAAWLE Executive Board and the 2020 Conference Planning Committee we regret to inform you that due to the increased spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19 virus), the 2020 MAAWLE Conference scheduled for April 5 – 9 in Roanoke, VA is cancelled.
Our concern is for everyone involved and the community. Our decision to postpone the conference was not made easily, however, the safety of our members, attendees and sponsors is our priority. MAAWLE is committed to the safety of everyone. Our decision to cancel this event was made after careful consideration and a comprehensive review of information and intelligence from local, state, and federal health officials.
We anticipate providing our membership with additional information concerning refunds, hotel reservations, awards, etc. We ask that you please be patient as we work through this uncharted territory together.
Thank you for everyone’s support and patience.
THE MAAWLE Board
