With so many unknowns about the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the Western Regional Trustee Symposium Planning Committee have made a very difficult decision, determining that it is in the best interest of the health and safety of our members to cancel the 24th Annual Western Regional Trustee Symposium scheduled for June 10-12.

It is very unfortunate, however, during this time filled with so much uncertainty we feel it would be irresponsible to bring health care professionals to one place and then have them return to hospitals and to their communities posing the risk of spreading COVID-19.
