Southcentral Region In-Person Meeting Canceled

Good afternoon.  Over the last few weeks I have been in contact with regional leadership to evaluate the likelihood of having an in-person meeting in Starkville, MS on November 3rd – 4th.  We considered several factors in our decision-making process including Covid-19 cases in the immediate area, hospital capacity, and company travel restrictions.  Ultimately, to ensure the safety of Members and friends, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person meeting at the MSU Mill Conference Center.  We understand your disappointment but believe we made the best decision considering the circumstances. 

On Wednesday, November 3rd, the Southcentral Region will sponsor a one-hour webinar from 1:00 – 2:00 pm  (Central) featuring an update on FRA’s ongoing trucking study from Dr. Joe Conrad.  A virtual Southcentral Region Steering Committee Meeting will immediately follow from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.  Additionally, I am happy to announce that FRA is offering several other virtual events in the coming weeks to keep our members engaged until in-person meetings can resume.  Opportunities range from one-hour webinars to half-day virtual meetings.  More information on these events is expected in the next few days.  We are hopeful that the Southcentral Region will be able to have an in-person Spring Meeting in Nacogdoches, TX in March 2022!

Please feel free to reach out to me with any question or comments.
