To say that these are unprecedented times is an understatement. We know that many of you are experiencing challenging business conditions as well as anxiety-inducing personal situations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that you take every precaution to protect yourselves, your families, your employees and your friends.
I wanted to share an update on the Global Retail Marketing Association and our 15th Annual C-suite Growth and Innovation Forum. Last week we made the decision to reschedule the May Forum to October 6-8th. This decision has been met with overwhelmingly positive response and support from our community.
We are in the process of updating our speaker and roundtable agenda to allow for C-Level leadership discussion on the pandemic, how it has impacted consumer behavior, our business and our economy. We will also discuss what we have learned from this experience and how we will rebuild and restore growth in the business community.
To remind you, our event is free for client-side senior marketers and executives, and your spouse is welcome to join you as well. You need to cover only your transportation costs and hotel room. If you would like to join this important conversation in October and your calendar is open on these revised dates, we would still love for you to join us. Here is a link to a short registration form so we can hold your complimentary space.
We are optimistic that once this is behind us, our unrelenting generosity as humans, and our creative ingenuity as business leaders will reset us on an upward trajectory of growth.
Wishing you and your loved ones all the best.
President and CEO, GRMA
