Friends and Colleagues,
We are writing to inform you that, in light of the enduring challenges and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Technology Exchange that was scheduled to take place in Atlanta, GA (October 5-8, 2020).
The health and safety of the community continues to be our top priority and, given the unpredictability of travel restrictions, budgetary challenges, and the ongoing health and safety concerns of large gatherings, any attempt to plan an in-person conference in October would be impracticable and unrealistic.
In the coming weeks, we will be soliciting more community input as we evaluate options for virtual programming and engagement activities for the technical communities that would have participated at TechEx. We’re confident that we can continue to share experiences and maintain the crucial exchange of ideas that are the hallmarks of the Technology Exchange.
We’ll continue to provide updates and information through our communication channels. Until then, we hope that you are all safe and well.
