19th Annual START Conference - CANCELED

Statement on COVID-19 and START Conference

March 27, 2020

After extensive discussion and consideration, the START Project team has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 19th Annual START Conference scheduled for April 27, 2020. While we regret the cancellation of this conference, the health and safety of those in attendance is our first priority. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. 

Due to the large number of refunds that are being issued for this, and other Grand Valley State University events, and considering that GVSU is operating remotely and will be doing so for the duration of Governor Whitmer’s Stay at Home Executive Order, we ask that you allow for ample processing time. If you have not received your refund by May 15, you are welcome to contact our office.

Please remember to cancel any hotel reservations that you may have made associated with this conference. 

If you have any questions, please contact the START office. As a reminder, email is currently the best way to reach START because our office is working remotely. 

We thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you in 2021! 
Thank you,
The START Team
