Coronavirus alias COVID-19 Update as it Relates to CEANA-2020 Convention

With the COVID-19 situation ever-present in the news headlines, the executive leadership of CEANA wants to provide everyone with an update on where we are as an organization.

The health and safety of our entire membership is our top priority and the executive leadership is highly engaged and monitoring developments keenly.

CEANA and the CEANA Convention Planning team has NO plans to make any changes to our scheduled convention at this time. The convention date is September 3rd thru September 7th, 2020 which is 6 months away.

We will continue to update our members and guests and interested parties around the world in the coming weeks and months as we learn from health authorities, government and state authorities.  

Both the convention and hotel reservations are still in progress and the concept of first come first serve is still in place. Please visit http://ceana2020.com/ or https://ceanaonline.org/to make your reservations and also for updates.

Out of abundance of caution, we encourage all friends and family to follow the CDC recommendations to help prevent infection and the spread of the virus, including but not limited to:

  • Wash your hands frequently with clean water and soap
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray and wipe.

The CEANA Convention Planning Committee in conjunction with the CEANA Secretariat will keep providing updates as we learn of developments from the CDC and other national health experts.

As of now, we are poised and on course to host the CEANA 2020 convention in the beautiful city of Atlanta Georgia. Please continue to encourage your members and all interested parties to register for the convention.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this situation together as an organization.

Thank you.

CEANA Convention Planning Committee & CEANA Secretariat.
