The UCA of SME has today cancelled NAT2020, the North American Tunneling Conference, that was to be held in Nashville, Tennessee from June 7th – 10th. The following statement can be found on the UCA of SME website:
We are disappointed to inform you that NAT 2020 has been cancelled. It is with the safety of all involved, coupled with the uncertainty of what business and travel environments will look like in June, that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this important event
One of the core values of the UCA of SME is health and safety, so it is even more critical that we take measures to stay true to our principles and lead the way in these uncertain times. It’s not the outcome we planned for and we are saddened we won’t see you in Nashville. However, the UCA staff is working on potential virtual options to offer. Stay tuned for more information coming soon
We promised you a risk-free registration and here is how we are honoring that promise:
- Registration refunds – We are working to process your refund as soon as possible. Please be patient during this time.
- Hotel refunds – If you booked your hotel though the hotel block your reservation will automatically cancel at no charge. If you booked your hotel through a third-party site, you will need to cancel that reservation.
NAT conference proceedings will be available in May through the UCA bookstore. Watch your email for details. You can find other online technical resources from UCA including webinars, eBooks and papers, including access to OneTunnel.org, at ucaofsmenet.org. We remain committed to your professional development, wherever you are.
Looking forward, we know the current situation won’t last, so mark your calendars for the Cutting Edge Conference held November 9-11, 2020 in Dallas, Texas and for RETC held June 13-16, 2021 in Las Vegas.
