NCEAS Annual Conference COVID-19 Update

After much consideration, the NCEAS leadership has decided to cancel the upcoming April 27-28, 2020 NCEAS Annual Conference due to the coronavirus pandemic. In making this decision, we considered the potential risks of exposure to participants, the growing number of institutional and governmental travel restrictions, and the possibility for increased local responsibilities among the healthcare, public health and education workforces.

We are sorry that we will not be able to gather this spring to learn, network, honor presenters and attendees, and work towards shared goals.

We hope that this decision does not create hardships for any of you and that travelers are able to get refunds or credits for planned travel. During this unusual time, many exceptions are being made for typically non-refundable charges. We anticipate refunding the conference registration fees over to the next few weeks. As a non-profit organization with limited staff, we hope that you will be patient with us as we navigate next steps.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.
