Like many of you, I have been anxiously monitoring COVID’s fourth wave and the ways that our institutions and organizations have responded. It has been a dynamic situation to say the least and unfortunately has impacted a number of events and activities planned for the coming months.
The PIN Executive have made the difficult decision to postpone the October 17 – 22, PIN/WFCP Leadership Summit in Maui until 2023.
The decision was made due to the impact that the pandemic has had on international travel. Too many of our members and potential registrants are unable to attend and instead of forging ahead with a smaller contingent, we have decided to focus our efforts toward the 2022 Summit, which will be held in concert with the WFCP World Congress in Spain, June 12 – 17. We intend to maintain the same theme (Leadership for Sustainability in a Post-COVID World) and a similar agenda.
PIN would like to thank Maui College and Chancellor Lui Hokoana, for their support and flexibility under challenging circumstances.
More details will be forthcoming regarding the June/22 Summit in Spain and we would encourage you to also watch our website at www.pinnetwork.org. We look forward to seeing you in Spain.
