Re: 2020 Annual Convention
Dear KSRT Member,
The KSRT has been closely monitoring the developing COVID-19 situation. At this time and after much discussion, the Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone the Annual KSRT Convention due to the CDC recommendations for the virus.
The Board absolutely feels the health and safety of our members and the patients we serve warrant this postponement. Many colleges have closed campuses for an extended period of time and many healthcare facilities are taking strict precautions and advising against employee travel.
The society will be working with the venue to ensure the convention will be held at a later date and time. Information will be distributed once the Board of Directors meets and has the opportunity to discuss potential dates.
The Board of Directors has authorized a full refund to those who have already registered. Please bear with us as we process these reimbursements. Contact email@example.com any questions regarding refunds. If you have already made a hotel reservation using the KSRT code, the hotel will allow you to cancel your reservation without penalty.
Additional information regarding conference exhibits, essays, competitions, and scholarships will be coming in the near future.
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience you will incur from this decision; however, the health and safety of our members and the communities we serve is our priority. Providing continuing education, advocating, and your support is very important to the KSRT.
KSRT Board of Directors
