2020 TNLTA Convention Canceled

To the TNLTA membership:
After careful consideration due to the rapid escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak, the TNLTA board of directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Convention and postpone its 2020 Annual Meeting scheduled for April 15 – April 17 at the Biltmore Inn in Asheville, North Carolina. All registration fees will be fully refunded by April 10, 2020. This is to allow time for processing of the registration refunds. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. Additionally, the Biltmore Inn will be refunding your deposits. Please do not call them, as this will be handled automatically.
Having the opportunity to interact with our members in person is one of our favorite times of the year; however, the widespread travel bans and state of emergencies being declared have made the logistics of traveling for our members increasingly difficult. The health and safety of our members and staff is our highest priority.
The current plan is to hold a virtual annual meeting for the members for the main purpose of electing new board members and officers. The logistics and schedule of the annual meeting is still being determined, and more details will be provided to members in the coming weeks.
We, as an association, appreciate your continued support and understanding during these challenging times. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and I look forward to meeting with you all face to face at future TNLTA events. Stay safe and healthy!
Justin S. Tanner
TNLTA President 2019-2020
