Dear SAFE Community,
*IMPORTANT MESSAGE* Please pass to all within your organization so that we might get this to everyone.
First and foremost, we hope that everyone has been well. As we’ve progressed through early 2021, the Symposium Committee started early planning for both a virtual symposium and an in-person symposium, unsure of what road we would be able to take. But it is with great excitement that we are able to announce we will host our 59th Annual Symposium, in person in Mobile, Alabama! As you can imagine, things will be slightly different from our normal symposium, as we are keeping safety restrictions in mind while planning. Fortunately, our venue in Mobile, AL offers a beautiful and versatile convention center that will allow us to add in extra spacing between exhibitor booths and tables, utilize an outdoor space for one of our networking receptions, and plenty of spacious meeting rooms to have presentations with socially distanced seating for the attendees.
Below, you will find key dates and information regarding our 2021 SAFE Association Symposium:
