Update 5/21/20: The NASPI Leadership has tentatively rescheduled the NASPI Work Group meeting to November 4-5 in Minneapolis, NM. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation across the U.S. and around the world and will make a decision whether or not to have a face-to-face meeting based upon information we receive from health officials. Please check back for updates, thank you and stay well.
This morning, March 6, the NASPI Leadership Team decided to postpone the North American Synchrophasor Initiative (NASPI) meeting scheduled for April 15-16, 2020 at the Radisson Blu in Minneapolis, Minnesota out of an abundance of caution.
The health and safety of all who attend NASPI meetings is our priority, and given the latest information on the coronavirus (COVID-19) we arrived at this decision after assessing recent developments surrounding the coronavirus situation – including tracking updates from the U.S. State Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and International SOS, a leading medical and travel security services firm. We have also been monitoring advisories and recommendations issued for locations where other EPRI events are planned and recognizing that several organizations have recently curtailed travel for their employees. EPRI and the leadership team has spent several months planning for an exceptional meeting, and we will build on this progress and reschedule this event for the fall timeframe. Please contact Heide Roland (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Gail Breneman (email@example.com) if you have any questions. We value your engagement with NASPI, and we apologize for this disruption to your plans, particularly this close to the event. For hotel, flight, or other bookings related to your travel, please reach out to those businesses directly to process your cancellations.
The leadership team is evaluating the possibility of scheduling one or more webinars during the April 15-16 timeframe, in addition to our upcoming webinar on March 18. We will provide more information soon. In the meantime, thank you for understanding as we take these important steps for your health and safety.
