It is with a heavy heart that I write today to tell you that AOR has made the decision to delay the start of our conference by 2 weeks due to the overwhelming and devastating impacts the current wildfires are having across our beautiful state.

Many of our members and their employees have lost their homes and businesses, and several of our Board members have also been impacted by the recent fire events. In light of this, the virtual conference will now begin on September 29th with the sessions as scheduled.

What this means for you:

  • There will still be 12 webinar sessions. The first four are currently being rescheduled for later in October.
     
  • If you are registered for the series, your registration will simply carry over and you will have access to all 12 sessions. There is nothing you need to do.
     
  • If you are registered for single sessions, or a bundle of sessions that included a webinar that was scheduled for 9/15, 9/17, 9/22 or 9/24, your registration will also carry over to the new date, once we have confirmed new dates with our speakers. There is nothing you need to do.

If you have questions, or need assistance with registering, please contact me.
