Given the increasing health concerns regarding COVID-19, our leadership team is closely monitoring the developments and guidance issued daily by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other federal agencies.
We remain hopeful that the 2020 HBCU Kings & Queens Conference will be held as planned. Due to the unexpected closures of HBCU campuses and the postponement of student elections, we will broaden our reach to allow both newly elected and prospective candidates the opportunity to attend the conference as they see fit. We understand the value of this conference and the important role it plays in the leadership development of Royal Court members, which is why we are expanding our programming to include a special track for students seeking election. It is our desire that all student participants are accompanied by a university advisor. If not, a signed waiver will be required.
The HBCU Kings & Queens Conference continues to be the premier resource for leadership and development for campus royalty. Know that the wellbeing of our stakeholders is a top priority, and that we are fully committed to taking appropriate actions to safeguard our conference attendees and staff. As such, we will continue to evaluate our plans to determine the best course of action and will provide updates as needed.
