After speaking with our legal team and our board of directors, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 LIVE Annual Meeting on April 28th due to the COVID-19 coronavirus situation. This decision was not taken lightly, as we know many of you look forward to this event for education and collegiality. However, we were to have speakers flying in from other states, the event was to have taken place during Oregon's state of emergency, and the outlook for April and May is uncertain.

We will elect this year's board of directors via electronic or written ballot (TBD), which is permitted under the Oregon Nonprofit Corporation Act and our bylaws. We will work with those who were scheduled to present to send resources to our members via email in the coming weeks and/or invite them back to speak next year.

Our priority is for the safety and well-being of our membership, staff, volunteers, and guests. We thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time.
