Due to the worldwide outbreak of the potentially deadly coronavirus, the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting of Members scheduled for May 1-3 in Naples, Fla.

The World Health Organization, on March 11, 2020, declared the coronavirus outbreak a worldwide “pandemic.”  Forty-nine states, including Florida, have declared the coronavirus outbreak to be a public health emergency.  On March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared the coronavirus outbreak a “national emergency.”  This outbreak, and its associated emergency circumstances, was the basis for the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Meeting.
