In response to the survey that was sent out to see who would support a virtual conference, we had an overwhelming positive response of well over 300 individuals who would like to participate in a virtual conference and over 100 of those were not planning to attend the physical conference in Florida! We are excited to fulfill our mission, to promote the advancement and dissemination of research in all aspects of biological rhythms, in this capacity.
As we approach the transition to a virtual conference, we want to humbly state that SRBR is a not-for-profit organization that depends heavily on its biennial conference to sustain its financial well-being. Like other professional organizations that hold conferences, SRBR has made up-front investments to plan and execute a Biennial Conference and while SRBR cannot be released from all its financial obligations, with the support of our members and exhibitors we will be able to provide an education conference, support our TYDE and Global Trainee Awards and meet our financial obligations.
Below you will HEAR first hand from your SRBR President, Program and Fundraising Chairs to encourage you to join us for this Virtual Conference.
CANCELING YOUR HOTEL ROOM
If you had a room reserved at the Omni Resort and/or Villas, the hotel will be canceling all rooms in the SRBR Block. Should you still plan on visiting Amelia Island, please contact the hotel and let them know you would like to keep your reservation. We ask that you do not call the hotel for canceling. The hotel will cancel all reservations and you will receive a cancellation confirmation to the email you have on file with them. If you have not received a cancellation confirmation, please feel free to give them a call to ensure your room has been canceled.
If you booked a room outside the SRBR Room Block, you will need to call the hotel directly at 1-800-843-6664 to cancel your reservation. You will be subject to the cancellation policy of that reservation.
