On March 19, 2020, the RMLA Board of Directors voted to cancel the 2020 RMLA annual conference scheduled for May 11-14, due to concerns related to COVID-19.  The decision to cancel this year’s conference was not easy as we know how important this training conference is to each of you.  With the current state of world affairs, we felt it was in the best interest of everyone involved to focus on their health and well-being so we can put this unprecedented situation behind us.  We apologize for this cancellation and will be working diligently to ensure a successful 2021 conference for you to attend.
