Washington Watch 2020

From the Desk of NAFB Executive Director Tom Brand

Following cancellation announcements of gatherings of 50 people or larger by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) due to COVID-19, the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) has postponed its 2020 Leadership NAFB and 2020 Washington Watch events, slated for April 24-26 and April 27-29 respectively, in Washington, D.C.

For those attendees registered for 2020 Washington Watch: At this time, all paid registration fees for 2020 Washington Watch will be held by NAFB for the to-be-determined rescheduled event date.

Upon request, your 2020 registration fees paid to NAFB may be refunded to you; please contact Susan Tally via email to start the refund process.

Additionally, please contact the Holiday Inn Washington Capitol (host hotel for Washington Watch) as soon as possible to cancel your April sleeping-room reservation without penalty – phone 202/479-4000.

PLEASE NOTE: All 2020 Washington Watch transportation costs (flights, rental cars, etc.) are the responsibility of each attendee.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time in the United States regarding public gatherings, transportation, and other event logistics. The health, safety, and well-being of NAFB members is of the utmost concern to our board, our staff, and me as executive director.

As previously stated, we will be in touch with additional information, as it becomes available to us, on the rescheduled dates for 2020 Leadership NAFB and 2020 Washington Watch.

Additional questions on this matter may be directed to me via email or at phone 816/294-2381.
