The American Lighting Assn. (ALA) Board of Governors and ALA staff has made the decision to cancel the 2020 ALA Conference due to the health concerns associated with COVID-19. The event was scheduled to take place in September at the Breakers Palm Beach in Florida. ALA shared the message below in an email:
"This decision is based on the health risks and travel precautions outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and continuing changes that affect each state as well as Canada. We sincerely regret any inconvenience resulting from this decision; however, your health and safety is our number-one concern.
If you are not sure if you are registered for conference, please contact Liz Ware at [email protected] to inquire about your reservation status and any potential pre-paid deposits.
In lieu of the 2020 event, potential virtual meeting options are being reviewed, and more details will be forthcoming.
Our decision is entirely focused on ensuring the safety of our members. Thank you to everyone who contacted us and/or participated in the survey with pertinent information to assist the Board of Governors in making this important decision. The member support we have received is a testament to the strength of both the industry and our organization, and we look forward to working together to develop a great 2021 Conference.
More information will follow soon. In the meantime, check www.ALAConference.com for the latest updates."
