2020 EFB Users Forum, COVID-19 Response
April 15, 2020
We would like to extend our thank you to the EFB community, our members, sponsors and exhibitors for their support. We have followed the COVID-19 pandemic as it has evolved and continue to follow protocols established by all local, state, and federal health officials.
As a result, the Spring 2020 EFB Users Forum planned for June 30- July 2 in Annapolis, Maryland has been cancelled. All sleeping room reservations in the room block have been automatically cancelled. We will be reaching out directly to those who have secured exhibit booths, sponsorships, and other meeting related items.
We wish you all good health through this world-wide pandemic that we are experiencing. As always, please feel free to reach out should you have questions. We are here to help and are happy to do so.
Best Regards from the entire ARINC IA Team to All and Stay Safe
