Dear NAFC & SSHR Attendees, Exhibitors and Sponsors,

We have looked forward to hosting you in-person at ATA’s National Accounting and Finance Council’s Annual Conference and Exhibition this November in Charlotte, North Carolina and ATA’s Safety Management Council’s and Transportation Security Council’s Safety, Security and Human Resources National Conference and Exhibition this December in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, as you may have seen in correspondence sent yesterday from ATA President and CEO Chris Spear, due to the unfortunate surge of state COVID-19 restrictions, we had no option but to move all ATA events to a virtual platform for the remainder of 2020.

Thank you to those who have already registered to attend, have committed to a booth in our exhibit hall or sponsorship of a program. In the next week, the leadership of these ATA Councils will be in touch with registrants, our generous sponsors and current exhibitors on a new action plan including sponsorship opportunities. We will also post an updated program and schedule, as well as instructions on how to access the many different meetings.

We know how important it is for our Council communities to get together to connect and stay up-todate on the latest trends in our industry. We expect these virtual events will provide you the same informative and relevant educational sessions you have come to expect from an ATA meeting. Furthermore, our hope is now that these events are being held online, additional staff from your companies can benefit from the valuable information being shared.

Thank you for your patience as we finalize our programs and opportunities. We will miss seeing you in-person but look forward to two great events!


Best Regards,
