No doubt you have been following the news regarding Coronavirus – also known as COVID-19. I want to assure you that the National Speleological Society (NSS) and the 2020 NSS Convention Staff continue to closely monitor the situation and the potential effects to our members and events. We are committed to keeping you safe as the health and well-being of all our members are top priorities.
As of now the 2020 NSS Convention remains as scheduled: July 27–31, 2020. Based on the uncertainties regarding COVID-19, the NSS Convention Staff has decided to change the Pre-Registration deadline to May 31, 2020. We hope this doesn’t inconvenience our membership.
One thing we should all do is educate ourselves from a reliable scientific source:
- Centers for Disease Control:
- Johns Hopkins University:
- World Health Organization:
As always, feel free to send any questions or concerns our way. If scheduling changes need to be made, we will reach out again. It is in challenging times like these that we see our core values in action. Thank you for your commitment to each other and the NSS.
Keep Calm & Carry On
