3  Education & Conference Committee (EACC) Update of progress

  2. Update of progress 

     The March 27 Annual Conference was cancelled, due to COVID-19. We will refund all registration fees and vendor table fees and reschedule the Annual Conference to August 2020.  In the intervening months the committee will offer up to 4 hours of live streamed CEs (2 hour ethics, 2 hours suicide).

    As background:

    - The $890 spent on conference mailings will be the only expenses that we will not recoup.

    - We considered cancelling the in person conference and instead recording and posting sessions online.  However, I contacted DOPL to ask if they would consider recorded online sessions as "in person" CEs and they said no.  

    -We hope that live streamed webinars (1-2 hours each) will enable us to recoup our financial loss and will enable registrants to obtain their essential credits well in advance of license renewal in September.  

    -The rescheduled Annual conference will also occur before license renewal, so that participants can still earn all credits in time.  We will announce a rescheduled date ASAP so that registrants know they can still obtain credits in time.  

  3. We discussed the idea of live-streaming the conference on March 27, but agreed that we aren't equipped to live stream 4 concurrent sessions and would need to hire that out, which is likely quite expensive and not feasible at this late date.  

  4. Items for vote - None
  5. Budget Changes - None
  6. Suggestions from Board - Ellen and Jim will email registrants and post an announcement on the website today.  Sandi will contact vendors.
