In consideration of the impacts of Hurricane Irma and its aftermath, we have decided to cancel the Statewide Arts Conference. We’ve based this decision on the likelihood that participants and presenters from many parts of the state will face weather-related issues around housing and transportation, along with other situations that might prevent conference attendance. Our first concerns are safety and limiting potential difficulties that might result from moving forward with the conference.
Although the weather will be back to normal by Friday, we are making this decision today to give everyone ample notice and to allow our contractors and keynote speakers to adjust their plans in a timely manner.
We’ll be in touch with registered participants as we begin processing refunds. Anyone who made a hotel reservation for the conference should contact the hotel directly to cancel the reservation.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to sort out logistics. Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting Milly Hough, firstname.lastname@example.org, 803.734.8698.
We wish everyone the best possible outcome today and after the storm.
