In the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we have been working diligently with the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa to invoke the force majeure clause of our contract. On March 17, the hotel unilaterally canceled our agreement. The NCBFAA is still working with the hotel to finalize this matter, but at this time, we will not be holding our Annual Conference in Las Vegas next month. We have closed registration for the Conference and will be refunding all registrants over the upcoming week. We thank you all for your patience as we work to unravel this event on our back end.
As for the future of our Annual Conference, we are in discussion with the NCBFAA Educational Institute (NEI) to hold a joint G.TEC/Annual Conference in Chicago this August. We believe that this is in the best interest of our membership. We will share more information in the coming weeks as preparations are made.
Again, please accept our sincere apologies and thank you for your patience as we as we look to make the 2020 NCBFAA Annual Conference the best it can be for our members.
