We hope this message finds you in good health and well-being.  

With the current COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on mass gatherings in the state of Virginia and in our country, PCACAC has decided to cancel our 55th Annual Conference that was scheduled for April 19-21 in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  For the past several weeks, we have been working with NACAC officials as well as the Hotel Madison to ensure the safety of all those involved.  It is in the best interest of everyone to practice social distancing at this time.

We are very excited to announce that our conference planning committee is working to plan a virtual conference during the same time frame (approximately April 20th) that we hope you will participate in.  As always, we plan to offer many outstanding sessions that will allow you continued growth and education within our field.  The logistics of the online conference are being worked out and we will share more information as it becomes available. 

Please know that there are many moving parts that go into planning a conference and now, cancelling a conference.  We will be in touch in regards to refunds for the Harrisonburg conference and registration for the virtual conference.  Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

Respectfully,

Joel Lang
PCACAC President
