Sept. 2 Update
NRECA continues to closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and to prioritize the health and safety of our members, staff and other event participants. Local, state and national orders, recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, travel industry guidance plus the number of participants, where they are coming from, and their concerns around travel and gatherings all inform our decisions regarding NRECA events. For these reasons, NRECA has canceled Cooperative University, Oct. 26-30, Nashville, Tenn.; the G&T Legal Seminar, Nov. 5-6, Bonita Springs, Fla.; and Winter School for Directors, Dec. 11-16, Nashville, Tenn.
Madison-based programs that had been postponed earlier and were anticipated to resume in September are now being further postponed due to continued county restrictions on in-person gatherings. (Participants for those programs are being contacted directly.) We will continue to give careful consideration to the changing circumstances relative to our other NRECA events. We are approaching those decisions on a case-by-case basis due to different conditions associated with each one.
Those already registered for the canceled events will be contacted individually. In addition, we will use cooperative.com, NRECA's online professional communities and email to communicate these changes. We are exploring options for rescheduling or offering virtual options for those events where such alternatives may make sense.
