Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after much consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 AWRC conference, originally scheduled for July 28 and 29 in Fayetteville. The health and safety of our staff, attendees, and everyone else involved is our top priority. We are considering hosting one or multiple webinars, so stay tuned for future announcements.
Thank you, and we hope everyone is doing well during these uncertain and challenging times.
