First I would like to acknowledge the disappointment I know we are all feeling around the cancellation of the SHAPE America annual convention. Although we completely understand the reasons behind the cancellation, it is important to acknowledge our feelings as this is an event we have come to look forward to and rely on for information, ideas, support, connections, and collegiality.
My co-chair Shannon Milliken and I, along with members of the SHAPE America staff have been in discussion about how to best meet our SIG’s needs now that our annual face-to-face meeting won’t take place. We also feel that it is important to connect now as our profession is in the midst of a major transition through the COVID-19 crisis. We have decided to host a few (exact number not known yet) webinars/virtual meetings using an “Ask the Expert” format. We have created a brief survey to determine wants, needs, areas of expertise, etc…. Please take a few moments to respond to our survey. If you would like to act as a panelist to support the collective group, you can indicate that on the survey and respond accordingly.
Thank you for your time.
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home, stay strong!
