2020 National Conference

March 6, 2018

April 1-2, 2020

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Extension Risk Management Education National Conference and Pre-conference scheduled for March 31 – April 2, 2020.

We will be issuing a full refund of conference registration fees to all registrants.  Your patience will be appreciated as we work through this process.* We understand the logistical inconveniences that may arise as a result of this decision and regret the disruption.  If you have incurred other expenses related to the conference, please work with your institution to resolve this.  The ERME program will not be able to reimburse unused airline tickets.  Each conference registrant will also need to take steps (if not already done so) to cancel guest room reservations at the Curtis.

The conference program and agenda booklet, which includes abstracts for all concurrent sessions and poster presentations, will be available on the conference website soon.  Given there are over 40 thirty-minute concurrent sessions, we will not offer those sessions via webinar.  However, we will make every attempt to offer the 75-minute professional development sessions via webinar (date and times TBA). Please check the website for additional information as it becomes available.

*If you haven’t received your conference registration refund by March 27, please contact Katie Carr at katiec@umn.edu or 612-624-7182.
