    The SESUG Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person conference in Charlotte, NC. While we are sad to miss out on the conference, health and well-being of our attendees is our top priority. We did not feel that we could hold this event while ensuring your safety.
