ISSA’s Slurry Systems Workshop Goes Virtual in 2021
Glen Ellyn, Ill. — Over the last few months, things have changed quite a bit in our communities, countries, and the world at large. Many industries, businesses, and organizations have had to adapt to these changes and the International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) is no different.
The ISSA Board of Directors and the Slurry Systems Workshop Committee have reviewed and discussed options for conducting the 2021 Slurry Systems Workshop scheduled to be held in Las Vegas, NV, January 18-21, 2021. Factors considered have included: participant health and safety, travel restrictions, host state meeting restrictions, speaker commitment, and educational and social programming.
After careful consideration of these and other factors, the ISSA leadership has made the decision to host the 2021 Slurry Systems Workshop virtually, January 19-21.
“The decision to move the Workshop to a virtual setting was one that was very difficult and a decision we as a committee did not take lightly. We know how important this Workshop is to our members as a spring refresher but we felt that at this time we needed to make this difficult decision to move it to a virtual platform for 2021. We hope that this will be a new opportunity to reach more people that have not been able to make it out to Clark County in the past and something we can use to our benefit others in years to come,” says ISSA President, Larry Tomkins.
The Slurry Systems Committee is committed to taking on this challenge of planning for a virtual Workshop. Committee Chair, Chuck Ingram adds, “While 2020 has challenged all of us like never before, we are working toward providing a program that will move our essential industry forward by learning better techniques to design, promote and install all of the disciplines represented by ISSA.”
More information on the schedule, sponsorship and networking opportunities, and reduced registration rates will be available in the upcoming weeks.
ISSA greatly appreciates your continued patience and support during this difficult time. We look forward to better days ahead for all of us and when the Slurry Systems Workshop will meet again in Las Vegas. If you have any questions, please contact ISSA at 630.942.6577.
