February 17, 2021 SHARE: LCEF has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Leadership Conference scheduled to occur this November. This decision was necessary based on contracts and travel considerations. The hotel could not commit to hosting our event and was firm on its cancellation fees. Canceling now makes the financial impact significantly less than allowing more time to pass. At the same time, it seems we won’t have a significant portion of the population vaccinated until late summer or early fall. Will folks travel and gather with a large group in the fall? There is too much uncertainty to open registration and hold the hotel block. In the end, we felt the safest decision was to cancel the event to ensure everyone’s safety. We will share details soon concerning the 2021 Annual Meeting and how it will be handled. We appreciate your understanding as we endeavor to make decisions in the organization’s best interest and those we serve.
