The COVID-19 has created an unusual and life-threatening situation. The Executive Committee of the WSST Board unanimously decided to cancel our 2020 WSST conference because of the myriad cancellations and policies implemented for individuals regarding travel restrictions. All these restrictions are based upon sound recommendations from the Governor’s office, the CDC, and the WHO. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary Andrea Palm recommended Thursday (March 12, 2020) to cancel any events of more than 250 people to help contain the spread of the virus.
We will commence with refunding registration and associated conference fees in a short while. This will take time as I have never done something of this magnitude before. Please be patient. Thank you for understanding.
A few details regarding reimbursement are that credit card transactions will be reversed and the card credited. Checks will be issued to school districts or individuals and that is where it may get tricky. Many school districts send me multiple registrations on a single check. I will do my best to send the reimbursement check to the correct SD person but I may need help in identifying that person. Watch for communications from me in the near future.
