The COVID-19 crisis has asked all of us to rethink how we live, play, and work. That includes how we come together as practitioners, co-investors, and employers to share practices and learn.
The National Fund for Workforce Solutions had planned to host our biennial convening next year on June 9-11 in Minneapolis. Right now, our staff would normally be preparing a sponsorship package, discussing themes, and getting started on a rough agenda. But these are not normal times.
Since we do not know what 2021 will hold for large gatherings, we have made the decision not to host our convening in June 2021 as planned.
We are taking this opportunity to reimagine our convening – scope, timing, format, everything. We have already had one brainstorming session, and we are excited to see where these conversations take us. We remain committed to hosting carefully curated events with lots of opportunities for our network partners and friends to connect in meaningful ways around actionable ideas.
Of course we will keep you informed as we move ahead with any and all National Fund events. Thank you for your interest in and commitment to this network and our mission. Have a safe, healthy, and enjoyable summer.
