The leadership of New England Archivists (NEA) is closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus developments and their implications for the Spring 2020 Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. The health, safety, and well-being of our community are our top priorities. At this time, the physical meeting in Rhode Island cannot proceed as planned. The leadership is considering all of NEA’s options and is working to determine the best course of action, including all digital and physical (later date) alternatives.
We know that this decision will affect many of you, and we thank you for your patience as we work to find the option that will best serve our community. We plan to reach a decision on alternatives soon, and we will share updates via the NEA website, social media, and the NEA listserv. In the meantime, we kindly ask registrants to wait on requesting a conference registration refund. Once an alternative plan is formulated, NEA will honor any requested refund (free of cancellation fees). With respect to hotel accommodations, please contact Marriott directly to cancel your reservation and receive a refund. Thank you for your support of NEA while we navigate the complexities of the coronavirus’s impact on the Spring 2020 meeting.
We appreciate your patience while we establish protocol.
