As of Friday (9/30), we only had 12 people registered for the RMAIR conference in Lubbock, TX from October 18 to 21.
Due to low registration, we are forced to cancel the event in Lubbock.
Those who registered will receive a refund. Please allow us some time to sort this out. We are adopting a virtual approach to share presentations that were accepted for the conference. Later next week we will share those details. We have logistics to settle with the venue.
We are disappointed by this news, but a lot of the conversations with members mentioned that budgets are an issue. In the future, we are focusing on the timing of conference planning occurring much sooner in the year. We are working to revitalize RMAIR so that it is not solely dependent on conference registration and membership fees for revenue. We are researching grants and ways to deliver more services to members beyond the annual conference.
More on those things in the weeks to come. In the meantime, look for an announcement about online presentations, our upcoming board elections, and new direction for RMAIR!
