A Message From the President

Dear SBAA Colleagues,

I am writing to share with you news about our 2020 Summer Workshop.  This week, the Board of Directors made the decision that we should cancel this meeting.  This decision was a difficult one to make, yet we recognize that with the uncertainties we are all facing at this time around the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision is the right one.  Currently, we are planning to continue with our November Annual Meeting in St. Pete Beach; however, we will continue to monitor this evolving situation closely.

Those of you who had already made hotel reservations will receive a cancellation notice from the hotel if you have not already done so.  Please go ahead and mark your calendar to join us at the DeSoto Hotel in Savannah for SBAA’s 2021 Summer Workshop scheduled for July 11-13, 2021.

We may have some virtual events in the coming months and will share that information as soon as the plans are confirmed.  In the meantime, stay home, wash your hands, and stay well.

All the best,
