We WILL be back next year!  Conference 2021 is already in planning progress at the same venue.  Meanwhile, special thanks to all who have currently registered for this year (2020). You may leave your registration with MI-ACE, which guarantees your 2021 pre-registration at the current rate OR we will process a refund for you if prefer.
