Message from the Chair

Dear SPE Southwest and West Chapter Members and Friends,

Over the last few months, the 2020 SPE Southwest and West Chapter Conference Committee has been meeting to plan and discuss our conference, "PLACE: Meaning and Reflection," scheduled for October 2nd-4th at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass Village, Colorado. It has been a difficult decision, but the committee has decided to cancel the conference. The health and safety of our members is our top priority. With so many unknowns as we approach summer, we also want to recognize the financial landscape that our members are in and the difficulty they may have in making a commitment to attend the conference or seeking travel funds from their institutions.

We know that the cancelation of the conference is disappointing, but the conference committee continues to meet to plan alternative programing for our chapters in place of this year's conference. We are grateful to Anderson Ranch for their flexibility as we navigate these unexpected territories, and for their continued commitment to our community. They have offered us innovative ideas and solutions to how we might proceed with virtual programming.

At this time, the Southwest Chapter still hopes to partner with Anderson Ranch for our 2021 Chapter Conference. We look forward to the time when we will be able to join together as a community and share a weekend of great food, friends, photography, and meaningful conversations in the beautiful Snowmass mountains.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Southwest or West Chapter leaders or the Conference Chairs. Please continue to follow the Southwest Chapter website and social media for updates. https://www.spenational.org/chapters/southwest

Sincerely,

Abbey Hepner and Esther Nooner, 2020 Conference Co-Chairs

SPE continues to carefully monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. We understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on meeting attendance, among other issues, are affecting our members. Though there remains much uncertainty at this time, what we know without a doubt is this: SPE members are facing unprecedented challenges, and the need for exploring best practices, sharing lessons learned, and connecting with their peers will be greater than ever. That's why we are committed to hosting our annual conference in 2021, and we want you to be a part of it.

Depending on how the pandemic mitigation efforts progress over the next several months, there are two possible scenarios for our 2021 Conference:

IN-PERSON: If we are confident early enough in the planning process that gathering in large groups will be deemed safe according to public health guidelines, the conference will be held March 18-21, 2021 in Denver, Colorado at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.

VIRTUAL: There's a real possibility we will need to transition to hosting a virtual or hybrid conference. If we do need to go virtual, we would adjust the conference dates to allow it to take place over an extended period of time, rather than condensed into four days. We would work with accepted proposals to build the schedule over that longer period of time.
