2020 Material Advantage CVD event cancelled

Dear 2020 Material Advantage CVD Registrants,

Based upon several factors: recent events regarding COVID-19, the Washington DC Mayor’s declaration of both a state of emergency and a public health emergency on March 11, in addition to a growing number of universities ban on travel we have decided to cancel the Material Advantage Congressional Visits Day event scheduled for April 20-21, 2020.

While we know that this is a highly anticipated event, we believe that your health and safety is of the utmost importance.

It is the responsibility of each individual to cancel any travel booked for this event. Additionally, if any meetings have been scheduled with your congressional representatives please be sure to cancel those appointments as well. If at that time you wish to offer the appropriate staffer the one page handout created for this event, you may do so.

You may reach out to me with questions you may have regarding this cancellation. To keep up with the CDC’s information and recommendations, please visit www.cdc.gov.

Thank you,

Yolanda Natividad
The American Ceramic Society’s liaison to the Material Advantage Student Program
