Letter from the Chairman

Dear Colleague:

The BDUG Steering Committee has made the decision to cancel our annual conference this fall. The decision was not a difficult one, as we need to protect our members, speakers, and our great exhibitors from COVID 19, and not risk spreading the virus to their families and friends back at home.

While the annual meeting is not going to occur, our industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Therefore, BDUG’s focus for the remainder of 2020 will be to bring our membership timely and relevant speakers, as well as a forum for exchanging ideas and best practices. Several of the scheduled conference speakers have agreed to do webinars for the BDUG membership this summer and fall. Also, for those maintaining CSOP or CTOP designations, the committee will work with the ABA to provide continuing education credits for our webinars.

The annual BDUG conference will be back on September 19th-23rd, 2021 at the Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach. It will be great to see everyone there again.

Pete Bergman
BDUG Chairperson
