    The SACES Executive Committee and conference planners decided to cancel the 2020 SACES conference in Baltimore from October 22-24, 2020. Due to the immediate and long-term impact of COVID-19, we are no longer able to continue with conference planning. Therefore, the conference committee has halted all conference related activities including final dispositions of proposal submissions. However, we are moving forward with the SACES Emerging Leaders program, call for research grants and awards, and will host a virtual fall SACES business meeting.

    Over the next few months, we will explore alternative professional development opportunities for SACES members for the 2020-2021 academic year. At this time, we are seeking membership input to inform planning decisions. Please take a minute to complete the following anonymous brief survey. Your SACES login will be required to complete the survey. It will be available until June 4, 2020.

    Finally, we would like to thank those who volunteered to serve on the 2020 conference committees and the proposal reviewers. We hope you will join us for our 2022 conference, and we appreciate your understanding during these challenging times. We will continue to communicate about our future events.

    As graduate students and new professionals, it can be difficult to decide what we want to participate in. We often have many interests and little time. SACES recognized the need to provide a space where graduate students and new professionals can connect and support each other. That space is the newly formed graduate student/new professionals interest network.

    Jan Gay and I would like to invite you to our first meet and greet on May 13, 2020 at 1 PM CDT. We want to talk with you and get to know your needs and how we can make this interest network most beneficial to you. Please join us and help us learn how we can better serve you with this group!

    Please reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to have anything specific added to our discussion.
