SLC 2020 Annual Meeting Cancelled

A Message from

Speaker Tim Moore, North Carolina/SLC Chair,

and Ms. Colleen Cousineau, Director, SLC

The 74th Annual Meeting of the SLC will not convene in Winston-Salem, August 1-5, as previously scheduled. While we are saddened to share this news, especially in light of last year’s cancellation due to Hurricane Barry, we are committed to providing a safe environment in which to convene, and the health and safety of our members is of the upmost importance. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges associated with creating a safe place to convene, coupled with the inability to guarantee uniform enforcement of the federal and CDC guidelines, we have determined that cancelling the event is in the best interest of the SLC.


All Annual Meeting registrations will be automatically cancelled and refunded. Refunds will be processed in the coming weeks. If you paid via credit card, you will receive an updated receipt from our credit card processor,, when your refund is processed.
