Important Update - 2020 Slate Innovation Summit

Like you, we have been continuously monitoring the evolving COVID-19 global pandemic. We have watched other spring and summer events—both large and small—forced to be cancelled and postponed in these uncertain times. It is with profound disappointment that we share the necessary decision to reschedule the 2020 Slate Innovation Summit. Our paramount concern and responsibility is the health and safety of our community, and the Summit this year was expected to draw more than 3,500 attendees. Further, even if the pandemic abates in the coming weeks, we believe it would be impossible to achieve the high standard, broad impact, and close connections we have come to expect of our community gathering.

The Slate Innovation Summit will now be held June 3–4, 2021, in Nashville, Tennessee. Your current Summit registration, and Base Camp registration and course selections (if applicable), have been automatically transferred to the rescheduled dates, and there is no further action you need to take. Hotel reservations made through the Passkey system linked from the Summit website will be automatically cancelled and refunded for the 2020 dates, and any reservations made outside of this event block should be cancelled directly with the hotel. If, for any reason, you would prefer to cancel your Summit registration for the rescheduled dates, please email us by April 30, 2020 and we will be happy to assist. We will also be happy to assist with transferring your registration to another colleague at your institution at anytime in the future.

This summer, we will utilize both familiar and new online platforms for training, sharing of ideas, and the engagement of our community in the evolvement of the Slate platform. Launchpad is already now being hosted virtually. In the coming days and weeks, we will be sharing additional information about new features and functionality that have been developed to support the needs of your organizations today and tomorrow.

I will greatly miss seeing you all in person this summer, and I look forward to our return together at the Slate Innovation Summit in 2021. I am so thankful for our Slate Community. May we all be together in 2021 with a renewed sense of purpose and gratitude for one another.

Sincerest regards,

Alexander Clark
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
