It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of the PEAK2020 Annual Conference in Seattle. This difficult decision was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our attendees, staff, partners, and our communities.
PEAK Grantmaking leadership has been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Based on the latest guidance from public health officials, it became clear to us that cancellation was the right course of action.
It is heartbreaking to cancel what we’ve anticipated would be our biggest and best conference yet. But we see a way forward: Our team is now turning its attention to channeling the PEAK2020 program into alternative experiences that bring us together virtually for exclusive, in-depth learning.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank our community for their commitment to the success of this conference – from the nearly thousand attendees to the legion of volunteers, presenters, exhibitors, and sponsors who shared their time, expertise, collaboration, and leadership to make it happen, we deeply appreciate you all.
Looking ahead, we urge attendees to expedite cancellation of airfare and hotel reservations. We ask for patience as we develop plans for virtual PEAK2020 programming, and we will share additional information soon regarding registration fees.
On behalf of the PEAK Grantmaking Board Executive Committee,
Chief Operating Officer
