Dear TSSCVPR members and symposium registrants,

                Due to the recent state and national response to the outbreak of Coronavirus-COVID 19 and the implementation of the National Emergency plan including travel bans by most health care systems, the board of TSSCVPR made the decision to postpone our spring symposium that was scheduled for April 3-4, at the Wyndham Garden State College.  Many members have worked and planned countless hours to ensure another excellent symposium for all registrants and thus we decided to reschedule the symposium to a later date rather than cancel it. This will entail all registrants to review the following information:

  • The Wyndham Garden Hotel has now agreed to cancel all reservations of TSSCVPR symposium registrants who reserved a room for symposium on April 3-4, no need to call, but I would recommend checking your account to ensure you receive no charge.
  • The symposium is rescheduled for August 28-29th at the same location.
  • We will follow the same planned time schedule for the symposium.
  • All registration fees will be directed to the rescheduled symposium date unless you contact us that the rescheduled date will not work for you. If you need a refund please contact TSSCVPR at tsscvpr@gmail.com so that we can cancel your credit card charge or return your payment.
  • We will publish new information closer to the new dates for a room reservation schedule and registration information for any other members who may be able to attend in August, but had not registered for the April dates.

While this is a very unfortunate and unanticipated set of circumstances, I want to ask everyone for patience as we work through this process. I also want to thank everyone who worked so hard to plan this wonderful educational offering and ask for your continued dedication to make this happen at the new planned dates. I pray for your safety and good health as we continue through this public health emergency and hope to see everyone in August!
