We had hoped to host you in Texas this Fall; however, the rising number of cases due to the COVID-19 Delta variant have continued to create an unpredictable environment for large gatherings. First and foremost, we want to be mindful of everyone’s health and well-being so the decision has been made to postpone yet again.

Refund requests must be made in writing. If you wish to request a refund of registration fees, please contact Administrative Coordinator, Angela Plata.
