Compassion for Animals Action Symposium


Fellow Activists,

I have decided to postpone this yearís Compassion for Animals Action Symposium until the fall or early next year. Sadly, there has thus far been very low enrollment compared to registration in past years. With the symposium only five weeks away, Iím afraid the numbers for this year will be too small to accomplish our program goals. I know this is a disappointment to those who planned to attend, but I had to make the decision before more attendees and speakers made travel plans, etc., and before we invested further in pre-symposium expenses.

I canít pinpoint the reason for the lack of interest this year, but I welcome feedback regarding your wishes for the next symposium. Should the event be more centrally located? Was this yearís format not to your liking? Do you prefer nationally known speakers over our own Florida representatives? Please share your thoughts with me and Iíll improve plans for the next conference.

Thank you to the few people who did register. You will be getting a refund in the mail ASAP. Donít forget to cancel your registration at the Quality Inn or other places you were planning to stay.

To those who copied and distributed the symposium flyer, please retrieve any copies you can (without substantial difficulty) and please post this notice to any e-mail lists that promoted the conference.

I am very grateful for your support and assistance, and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience this postponement will cause you loyal activists.
