Dear Colleagues,

The RECS 2020 Planning Committee has been closely monitoring the situation related to COVID-19. We are aware that many large gatherings, including conferences, have been postponed and cancelled and we know that many are hesitant or unable to make travel arrangements at this time.

On behalf of the RECS 2020 Planning Committee, we are writing to let you know that ACF’s Research and Evaluation Conference on Self-Sufficiency will not be held in its current in-person format on May 27-29, 2020 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC. We are exploring alternate options at this time and will provide updates via our website and email list.

The wellness of our speakers, participants, and staff is our highest priority. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your continued support of RECS.

Sincerely,

RECS 2020 Planning Committee
