CANCELED: Academia Working Group (AWG) Spring Regional Seminar: UC Irvine, California (May 7)

Dear OSAC AWG Members,

As you are certainly aware, the increased number of cases of the COVID-19 (Corona virus disease) has resulted in special measures to avoid contamination and spread of the virus. Among these are recommendations which most corporate and government entities are undertaking including cancellation or postponement of events, and restriction of travel except for mission critical needs.

We recognize that as security professionals we have a responsibility to lead by example and ensure that our own membership and supporting personnel are protected from potential spread of or infection from this virus. As such, OSAC headquarters, the AWG Steering Committee, and the UC Irvine Planning Committee have made the decision to cancel our Spring AWG Seminar, which was scheduled to take place May 7, 2020. 

We were planning to hold this OSAC AWG UC Irvine seminar in tandem with a California Study Abroad Town Hall meeting on May 8th. The Town Hall will now occur in a webinar format at an earlier date and cover a topic related to COVID-19. Please stay tuned for an invitation from the host for AWG members to participate. Lastly, at this time we are still moving forward with our planning for our Fall International Seminar in London.
