Our Executive Committee met via conference call to discuss the situation with COVID-19 and the impact it continues to have on our member companies and their ability to send staff to travel and attend conferences. COVID-19 has placed us in a terrible position with the coronavirus spike that has been happening in Florida and the realization that we, the MBA of Florida, will not shoulder responsibility of the wellness of our attendees to participate in our Eastern Secondary Market Conference and Annual Convention-September 3-4, 2020. We also know many companies are still in travel/event restriction mode and it is not in the best interest of anyone to try and hold this event.
We have canceled with the hotel, and they will automatically cancel and refund your hotel deposit if you have made a reservation.
We are going back to the drawing board and revisiting if the 2020 Eastern Secondary Market Conference and Annual Convention will be held. We will advise as soon as we know more.
Also, already in the works are other opportunities to continue to educate you, your peers or your staff with industry specific webinars and maybe some motivation mixed in. Keep an eye out for more information on this coming out soon too.
Stay well, be safe, be smart. Let us get through this together.
On behalf of the MBA of Florida Leadership, we appreciate your support of the MBAF and our industry.
