Updates on Covid-19 from MOACAC

Update as of March 14, 2020 1:00p.m.

Conference Registrants and Members,

Due to the rapidly developing COVID-19 outbreak, the travel restrictions at organizations within our affiliates, and other circumstances outside of our control related to COVID-19, GPACAC and MOACAC have made the decision to cancel our Annual Conference planned for April 5-7. We know that many of you were looking forward to attending, presenting, and being part of this event. Your involvement in MOACAC is greatly appreciated and your safety is our first priority. 

Although the full refund deadline has passed, we are working internally and with external parties to establish a refund policy in light of this unprecedented situation. We will send additional information as soon as a policy is in place. 

Thank you all for your diligent work to keep yourself, your students, and your institutions safe during this time. We realize that there are many questions unanswered by this email. We will share news via email, our website and through our social media channels.  

 Be Well,

          The MOACAC Leadership Team


 

We appreciate your patience as we work through details and options in light of the developing COVID-19 situation. The following is information as of today March 13, 2020:  

The STL Inclusion "College Knowledge" Conference scheduled for tomorrow, March 14th, at Harris Stowe State University has been cancelled.  Registered students were notified via email on March 12th.  The Inclusion and Access Committee considered all of the options and the decision ultimately was made to cancel because our host institution, Harris Stowe State University, was closing their campus to all activities.  As of today, the future "College Knowledge" events are still on as scheduled.  

A decision about #2020InFocus Spring Conference will be made Tuesday, March 17th.  The leadership of MOACAC is continuing to conference with our event planning team for the spring conference and plan to have a decision with more details released to MOACAC members by late afternoon/early evening Tuesday, March 17th.  We will share news via email, our website and through our social media channels.  

Our aim is to provide you with accurate and timely information. Thank you for your patience.
