Update from Asheville
Good Day,

Kim and I made it to Asheville this evening. It is snowing but not freezing yet, however, it is supposed to snow a lot after 10:00 pm tonight. We have heard that American Airlines has cancelled all of their flights into Asheville tomorrow, we haven't been able to confirm what the other airlines will do yet.

We have decided to cancel all of the workshops on Monday, we will try to reschedule a few of them throughout the week if possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We will continue to monitor the situation before we start adjusting the program schedule. For now, we will plan to carry on and start the conference on Tuesday morning.

Many folks have started to use the mobile app (please see information below), this is a great way to stay in touch,I encourage everyone to download. There is also a ride sharing feature that will be very useful, I can see folks arranging shared rides, even from Atlanta.

If you need to reach me, the best way is through email, execdir@iawfonline.org, or you can call me at 406-531-8264. Please leave a message if I don't answer right away. Don't worry if I don't get back to you, know that I will be checking my messages regularly.

Please travel safely and we look forward to seeing you all in Asheville.

My best,

Mikel Robinson
Executive Director
