Summer Institute 2020 - Postponed

Fact Forward takes the health and safety of our partners and communities very seriously. We continue to monitor the escalating global impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Based on the current available information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Summer Institute scheduled for June 2-4, 2020 in North Charleston, South Carolina. 

The easiest way we can help South Carolina prosper right now is to heed the advice of the CDC and WHO by sheltering in place and practicing social distancing. We take this advice very seriously and intend to be a part of the solution by postponing our annual conference.

In order to ensure the health and wellbeing of our partners physically and mentally, we are postponing our annual conference to 2021. Though this is a year later than we originally intended for the conference to be held, we are keeping registration open for those who need to pay for professional development in this fiscal year.

 In the meantime, we will continue providing trainings in digital formats throughout the year. You can find these opportunities on our website and social media.

Thank you in advance for your support of the decision to postpone the 2020 Summer Institute. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you. You will be informed of a new date for Summer Instiute as soon as possible. In the meantime, please stay safe.
