NACAA Update – (COVID-19) and NACAA 2020 AM/PIC

NACAA Update – (COVID-19) and NACAA 2020 AM/PIC

Over the past several weeks, the NACAA Board of Directors has been evaluating and monitoring the current (COVID-19) situation.  As the outcome of this pandemic is still very fluid, and changing hourly, the board wants to assure you that we are still planning on holding the 2020 AM/PIC - July 19-24 in Virginia Beach, VA.  The health and safety of our members, speakers, partners and volunteers are of vital importance and will always be held at the forefront of any decision that is made in regard to the AM/PIC.  As we continue to monitor the situation, we will send additional communication to you if the board decides that modifications to the AM/PIC program are necessary. For now, we continue to plan for a successful event. The next edition of The County Agent Magazine is currently being printed and will mailed within 10 days and on-line registration will begin April 1, 2020 .

NACAA will be extending the Early-bird registration timeline (reduced cost) to now conclude on May 30, 2020 (instead of May 15).  Registration will continue until June 30th after that date, but the cost will not be at the Early-bird rate.

NACAA will also be extending the Deadline for entries for the Journal of the NACAA until March 30 th .

In addition to those modifications, NACAA Vice President Bill Burdine, along with the NACAA Council Chairs are extending the submission deadline for awards, oral presentation abstracts and posters to March 30 .  This new date is only for submissions with an original deadline of March 15.  Posters to be judged must have the pdf submitted by March 30 th 

We are also extending committee deadlines by two weeks to give committees adequate time to perform their duties. 

New deadline dates are:
March 30 - Award, poster, oral abstract submission
April 15 - State Chair approval
May 01 - Regional Chair approval
May 15 - National Chair approval

If State Chairs have already selected a State Winner, and would like to consider new submissions, please contact Scott Hawbaker at nacaaemail@aol.com to have selected State Winners cleared to allow for new entries.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact a committee chair, Council Chair or Bill Burdine.
