2021 Bistate Spring Meeting

While our plans remain in place for the 2021 Bistate Meeting, the steering committee has decided to pause on all planning activities.  We are continuously monitoring the current public health crisis and hope to resume planning in the fall.  While we understand many may question why our plans are currently to continue to hold our 2021 Bistate Meeting, our financial obligation to the hotel cannot, this far out from our program, be mitigated. It is in the organizations’ and members’ best interest for us to monitor the situation and work closely with our consultants and hotel partners to maintain the financial well-being of the organizations.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
