From RG Absher, Chair of the Fall Workshop Committee:
As you know, the Partnership’s Fall National Trails Workshop has been scheduled for October 27, 28, and 29th, 2020 in Spartanburg, South Carolina. As the host organization for this event, we have been working with a team of individuals from our trail community planning for both an in person workshop and the potential for a virtual workshop.
At this time, we feel we need to make a recommendation for the Trail Leaders Council about whether the workshop will be an in person event or not. There are a variety of factors to consider but of the utmost importance is safety and your willingness to attend an in person event in October.
Please help us in this process by filling in this very short survey. We don’t have the details of what things will be like in October so we are asking you to use your best judgement with what you know today.
We ask that you provide your feedback through this very short survey no later than June 7th. We hope to announce the decision by late June. Please feel free to share this email with anyone else who might be interested in attending the workshop.
SURVEY FORM linked here. Due 6/7/20
We would also like to remind you that the Partnership has created a page dedicated to tracking COVID-19. https://pnts.org/new/covid-19-updates-for-national-scenic-and-historic-trails/
If you would like something shared to this page, please email Samantha Haas, PNTS Communications Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your input.
