Updated PRCI Response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) - Moving All Upcoming Meetings through Fall to Virtual

June 30, 2020

PRCI continues to monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation to ensure the safety of our members, staff, and colleagues. We appreciate those of you that provided feedback regarding our most recent set of virtual meetings. We certainly understand the value that the in-person meetings provide as a forum for networking and collaboration and we are looking forward to returning to that environment when it is safe and advisable to do to.

Until that time, we have decided to conduct all meetings through the Fall virtually. This includes the following meetings, and any additional Project Team meetings or other in-person meetings that have been planned:

  • September 23-24, 2020 – Fall 2020 Executive Assembly Meeting
  • October 20-22, 2020 – Fall 2020 Technical Committee Meetings (all Technical Committees)

We are currently working with the meeting venues to postpone the in-person meetings to 2021 and will advise you of the new dates.

We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we adjust to the current environment. Please keep in mind there will likely be modifications to the agendas and dates to follow virtual meeting best practices and maximize participation.

As a reminder and at the recommendation of the World Health Organization (WHO), we do encourage that you exercise basic protective measures for your protection against the virus for your own safety and the safety of others.
