Coping with COVIDs: How to Cancel Major Events and Keep Your Organization Intact

In partnership with ASPA's Keystone Chapter
July 14 | 4 p.m. EDT

Whether there is a coronavirus lockdown, a major hurricane, an uncontrollable wildfire or a collapsed highway bridge, all of our organizations at some point will have to cancel a major fundraiser, membership conference or other significant event. How can we plan for such a potential calamity to be able to survive with both our finances and our sanity intact?

In this session, our speakers will highlight options to increase the likelihood of survival, as well as potential errors to avoid. For a concrete example, they will focus on ASPA’s cancellation of its 2020 National Conference in Anaheim this past spring.

Join us for this lively discussion. We’ll save plenty of time for Q&A!

This webinar is open to all Chapters and members in ASPA’s District II.  The format is designed to have an hour for presentation and discussion, which the Chapters can choose to supplement with a regular meeting.  District II is the pilot site for this new program sharing venture.
