This conference has been rescheduled to 2021
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference from the 2020 schedule and reschedule it to 2021. The 2021 conference will take place July 31 - August 1, 2021 at Proctor Academy, NH. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
