Dear APCO WRC Attendee,
It is with great regret that I announce that the 2020 APCO WRC has been cancelled. Thursday afternoon, our state governor announced a series of measures designed to protect public health, including the restriction on public gatherings of more than 100 people. Obviously, that affects a conference such as ours.
Up until Thursday at noon, we had every intention of hosting the conference, and had the commitments of our conference center, hotels, and committee to provide you with a safe, but incredible conference experience. Unfortunately, conditions within our state and region have dictated a different outcome.
Over the coming days and weeks, we’ll be issuing refunds to attendees. Please keep in mind that an event such as this takes some time to unwind, so we appreciate your patience. Like many of you, members of our conference committee have our day jobs in public safety, and we are also dealing with increasing duties related to the COVID-19 response.
Please reach out if I can answer any questions,
Chair, APCO WRC
