Dear Members and Colleagues:
The Program Committee convened recently and decided to plan for an all virtual meeting by default. Given all the unknowns, this will ensure that we are prepared to showcase a great meeting no matter what the physical scenario. This way those who wish to travel to Maui can still attend the meeting virtually and/or enjoy live components if allowed. Those who cannot make it to Maui will of course be able to attend virtually.
As mentioned in our prior email, the Hawaii Governor has announced a verification process for travelers to Hawaii starting September 1. If that happens as planned, traveling in October should be possible for those who wish to go to Maui.
Hawaii travel/tourism updates can be found here:
More details will be coming as we develop the virtual format and create the schedule, etc. Be assured this will be a high quality production with robust engagement capabilities.
We hope you are all staying healthy and in good spirits. Preparations continue and there are no plans to cancel at this time.
Thank you for your patience and perseverance.
