2018 CONFERENCE CANCELLATION NOTICE
First and foremost, we appreciate your patience and concerns regarding the status of the 2018 RCRA National Conference. As you are all aware, Panama City Beach and the surrounding area was severely impacted by Hurricane Michael earlier this month. Unfortunately, due to the amount of damage caused by the storm Edgewater Resort can no longer accommodate our group and has canceled our contract for the 2018 RCRA National Conference.
How did the decision to cancel at Edgewater arise?
With the unforeseen damages caused by Hurricane Michael, regretfully, Edgewater Resort can no longer accommodate the 2018 RCRA National Conference and has cancelled our 2018 contract. Your Board of Directors has explored several alternate locations; however, it has been determined that these options are not financially in the best interest of our duties to the membership and the Association.
The Board intends to continue supporting the Panama Beach area through re-negotiating a contract with Edgewater Resort for 2019. Upon successful negotiation, we will provide communication to membership regarding the details of the 2019 conference location, dates and details. Communication will go out in early January 2019.
