Notice of Cancellation - National CASA/GAL Association for Children 2020 Conference Washington DC, June 6-9, 2020
The National CASA/GAL Association for Children’s chief executive officer and the National Board of Trustees have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference, CASA/GAL Meets Congress and all associated activities. The decision was made after carefully evaluating all of the available guidelines about novel coronavirus (COVID-19) from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and input from members of our nationwide network of programs. Our top priority is for the health and well-being of our volunteers, members of our network and guests. We believe this is the best course of action to protect the health of our community and to comply with minimizing exposure as outlined by the CDC. We believe it is prudent to make a definitive decision about our conference now because of the evolving nature of the pandemic. We will automatically refund all conference registration fees to participants, minus any initial nominal applicable credit card transaction fees paid by registrants. Refunds will be made in the original form of payment to the individual whose name appears on the credit card transaction or on the check that was sent to National CASA/GAL. Our next conference will be our 40th anniversary conference, scheduled for June 2022 in Seattle. We look forward to seeing all of you there!
