In light of the cancellation of the SCWH’s June 2020 Conference, we have decided to move our conference, hopefully with much of our program intact, to June 17-19, 2021, in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We’re still working out details about the program and the hotel, but we wanted our members to get this news, as quickly as possible, so you could begin to make your plans.  Of course, like of all of you, we are mindful of how tentative our planning continues to be in the time of this pandemic, but we remain hopeful that the meeting can go forward next June.

In the next few weeks, we will be contacting those who were scheduled to present in 2020 to determine if these new dates will work for you.  We are also painfully aware of the financial toll this crisis has caused for many  – in the form of lost jobs, reduced research accounts, and a weakened job market – and will be considering ways of providing financial assistance, specifically in the form of conference travel funding.  More information on that will be available shortly.

As always, stay safe and be well. 

Nina Silber, President, SCWH
