*VASP 2020 Spring Conference Postponed*
After closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19, and considering recommendations from departments of health and the CDC, the VASP executive board has decided to postpone the spring conference Advancing School Safety 2.0: Supporting Gender Diversity and Mitigating Youth Suicide Risk with Todd Savage, which was originally scheduled for March 30, 2020 at Delta by Marriott in Burlington, VT.
We are actively working with Todd and our venue to find a mutual date that works. We are anticipating that we will be scheduling for late September to early October. When we have verified a date, we will let you know. Your registration will roll over to the new date, so there is no immediate action required on your part.
Please know the board made this decision after careful and thoughtful consideration of many factors. An incredible amount of work and energy has gone into preparation for this conference. VASP sincerely thanks you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation. Please feel free to contact Shannon Newell at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions you may have.
