Dear Members, Energy Market Participants, and Other Interested Parties,
Last week, the NAEMA Board of Directors made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Fall Conference, sponsored by Maxar and to be held in Atlanta, due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The health, safety, and well-being of everyone involved in the Conference is our highest priority. Moreover, the number of company-imposed travel restrictions (for attendees and speakers) and required COVID-driven agenda modifications would have greatly compromised our ability to deliver a quality conference on par with attendee expectations.
Many thanks to Maxar for their flexibility and willingness to roll-over their sponsorship to a future conference. Their ongoing support is greatly appreciated!
In order to provide the networking and education/industry update value you’ve come to expect from NAEMA, we are planning ongoing virtual education events and small-scale networking events (as conditions allow) over the coming months. Please watch your email, the NAEMA website, and LinkedIn for details.
If your company was a sponsor of the 2020 Spring Conference and agreed to roll-over your sponsorship to the Fall Conference, we will be in touch to discuss other opportunities for your sponsorship dollars.
NAEMA’s next conference will be the 2021 Spring Conference, sponsored by Uniper, in Austin, Texas. Further details regarding that conference will be announced as they are finalized. I’m sure we’re all hoping that conditions will have stabilized long before then such that we can go back to the holding the caliber of conferences consistent with NAEMA’s proud tradition.
Thank you for your understanding in these challenging times and your continued support of NAEMA. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Regards,
Steve Sheppard – Executive Director & CEO
Donna Foy – Deputy Director
