CSG ERC 60th Annual Meeting - Canceled
The largest gathering of state officials in the East
A Message from ERC’s 2020 Annual Meeting Co-Chairs
Dear CSG ERC Members, Colleagues and Corporate Partners,
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Annual Meeting and Regional Policy Forum in Manchester, New Hampshire August 23-26, 2020 has been cancelled.
This decision is unprecedented in CSG ERC’s history. As the ERC Co-chairs, we wanted you to know the decision was made after much consideration for both the safety of ERC’s membership and out of a concern that our colleagues around the region, as well as our private sector partners, were focused on managing this public health crisis.
For those of you who have registered for the Annual Meeting, all 2020 registration fees will be automatically refunded, and ERC will cancel all hotel rooms booked in the meeting room block. If you have any questions about the meeting, please contact AR Braver at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also want you to know our CSG Eastern Office staff is committed to continuing to serve our members by providing timely information and resources to better enable all of us in in the eastern region to respond to the public policy challenges posed by the coronavirus. In this regard, ERC’s website as well as CSG’s national website has a wealth of information on states’ response to COVID-19. The CSG Eastern Office will also continue to provide remote training opportunities, policy webinars, and respond to member information needs during this challenging time. Do not hesitate to call them if they can be of assistance to you.
State officials have shown great leadership in managing this crisis. We greatly appreciate the work you are all doing to continue to govern through this crisis and serve your constituents. Undoubtedly, there is much we will learn from this experience, and we look forward to the opportunity to meet with you in the future to share information, so we are better prepared for future health threats of this kind.
Finally, as ERC Co-Chairs, we remain hopeful that New Hampshire will have the opportunity to host the ERC Annual Meeting and Policy Forum in the not-so-distant future, after we have emerged from this pandemic. In the meantime, we look forward to meeting with you again next year in Toronto.
Until then, be well and stay safe.
