Dear NRCEC Colleagues,

The NRCEC 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 NRCEC 2020 Planning Committee, we want to share that ACF's National Research Conference on Early Childhood will not be held in its current in-person format on June 22-24, 2020 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. 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 NRCEC.

Sincerely,
NRCEC 2020 Planning Committee
