ECPA’s Leadership Summit cancelled; Alternative options being explored

Responding to developments stemming from the COVID-19 crisis, the ECPA board of directors decided on Friday to cancel Leadership Summit, scheduled for May 5-6 at the Nashville Airport Marriott.

“Each member of the ECPA board recognizes the strategic value of the ECPA Leadership Summit, a place where all of our organization’s core deliverables—networking, advocacy, and information—are present,” said Jeff Crosby, InterVarsity Press publisher and ECPA board chair. “Amid the rapidly-evolving health and travel situations we are all navigating, the board believed it was prudent to pivot now so we can explore all options and re-build an exceptional event in the months to come. We as a board will be working intentionally with Stan Jantz and the ECPA staff to support them as these changes are undertaken. I know I speak for the board when I say that we all look forward to gathering again in the near future.”

In the coming days ECPA will be refunding registration fees in full to those who had already signed up for Leadership Summit. Those who have made reservations at the Nashville Airport Marriott should cancel on their own. There will be no penalty if that is done more than 48 hours before the reserved dates.
