With the coronavirus outbreak expanding in the US, companies are halting travel, avoiding group gatherings and figuring out the best way to protect employees and serve customers. The CTA wants to help our Members plan effectively during this critical time, so we are canceling all or part of several near-term 2020 events. This will allow our Members to focus on core operations, plan ahead and conserve resources. Canceling meetings at the last minute means frustration and lost expense and no gain for everyone. Planning ahead gives us all more options.
