Cancelled: 20/20 Vision Conference

The following communication was circulated to CASC/ACSS Members and is now available to the public:

March 18, 2020

The Board of CASC/ ACSS regrets to announce that the 20/20 Vision: The Future of Spiritual Care conference, hosted by the Partners for Excellence in Spiritual Care has been officially cancelled due to the ongoing healthcare crisis related to COVID-19.

The partners are deeply saddened by the need to cancel this conference, and we have done so only after consulting with our Boards, the host city, conference centre and hotels. With the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 and the indefinite ban on gatherings in Ohio, along with the recommendation from the CDC to limit meetings to less than 50 people, it is impossible for us to continue to prepare for this conference. The fallout from not having a conference this year will impact each of us, as Members and as individual organizations, but this decision is the best one we can make at this time.

We now ask that you please cancel your hotel rooms and flights if you have booked them (many airlines are offering accommodations to reschedule fights for other dates/locations). Refunds for paid registrations will start to be processed by the organizing partners over the next several weeks. We ask that you be patient with us as we work through the process of refunding registrations, sponsorships and vendors while also working remotely and as we work to address other pressing issues.

Thank you again for your commitment to the profession and to each other. Be well and stay safe!

Elaine Nagy R.P.
President, CASC/ACSS
