NIRSA 2020 is officially canceled.
On March 16, at 2:30 p.m. PST, NIRSA announced it will no longer be hosting the 2020 NIRSA Annual Conference & Campus Rec and Wellness Expo due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The website post of the announcement stated the below, courtesy of NIRSA:
Due to the impacts of COVID-19 and recommendations from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the place-based 2020 NIRSA Annual Conference & Campus Rec and Wellness Expo will not take place in Phoenix, Arizona, this year as planned.
The decision to cancel the conference was made within a context of the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak, feedback from campus recreation leadership groups and the consideration for the safety of our attendees.
We are exploring new ways to connect members for education opportunities and social interaction. Alternatives are under discussion and we will keep NIRSA Members updated with these new ideas through future communications.
