It is with regret that LRIS needs to cancel its seminar Health & Wellness Programs for Public Safety Agencies scheduled for October 21-23, 2020. Today, the City of Nashville announced that it will remain in Phase Two of its reopening plan, imposing significant limitations on meetings. On a daily basis we have been monitoring the COVID status of Davidson County, where Nashville is located. For weeks, we have been optimistic, as the number of new COVID cases fell significantly from their July highs. Unfortunately, the last three weeks have seen an increase in COVID rates in the City, with the number of new cases presently in the “High” stage. Put bluntly, we simply cannot expose our seminar attendees to a risk of this sort.
Some of you may have received an email today from the hotel informing you that your hotel reservations were cancelled. During our conversations with the hotel there was a miscommunication between their departments and the email was sent before we had a chance to notify you of the seminar cancellation. We apologize for the inconvenience. You do not need to contact the hotel. All reservations for seminar attendees have been cancelled.
Since meeting in person at this moment is not an option, we will craft a webinar series based upon the topics we’d planned to present. Our intention is to release the webinar in early December, using many of the speakers who had planned presentation in Nashville. The Webinar will be available for live interactive viewing as well as downloading. In addition, we plan to hold a Health & Wellness seminar in July 2021. It’s a topic that’s important to us at LRIS and we can’t wait to share this experience with you.
All registered attendees to the seminar have the option of receiving a refund or credit to a future live LRIS seminar. In addition, anyone who accepts the credit for a future seminar will also receive complimentary access to the Health & Wellness webinar series. Please send an email to LRIS’s Seminar Coordinator Claire Cowan at claire@LRIS.com, letting us know your preference.
Above all, we thank you for your patience during these most difficult times.
