Reservations and registrations will be refunded in the most efficient manner. Here is what you can expect as an attendee, exhibitor or sponsor:

  • If you donated to the SC&RF upon registration, your donation is appreciated.

Association Business (Meetings; Awards; Governance)
  • Over the next few weeks, staff will be determining ways to virtually conduct and execute committee meetings, award recognition, Board of Director and Governing Committee elections, and the Job of the Year competitions.  Some of these may happen over the same dates (April 14-18) originally scheduled for the Annual Conference or in the months following.
