Important LEEF Announcement
Dear LEEF members and Conference attendees,
Due to an abundance of caution we have decided to postpone the LEEF conference in March and reschedule due to the public health concerns over coronavirus (COVID-19). Several folks have already cancelled due to travel restrictions placed by their agencies. Many Universities are moving their courses to online to prevent potential spread. Large gatherings across our state are also being cancelled. We want to ensure the well-being, health and safety of our conference attendees and the board has decided to cancel the March 27 - 29, 2020 conference dates and will be working with the site to find later dates this year or next that will work for everyone. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will be working hard over the next few weeks to identify new dates, process any refunds and work with our keynote speakers, presenters, sponsors and donors. We will be in touch about the refund process and the options for folks already registered.
We greatly appreciate your support and we wish you the best with your health and well-being.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during the rapidly changing situation. Please know your health and well-being are very important to us.
Current LEEF President
