CVSA Cancels Scheduled April Events

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) holds meetings and events throughout the year at various locations throughout North America. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, the health and safety of our members remains our top priority. Therefore, after closely following the coronavirus pandemic, CVSA has decided to cancel its events planned for April. That includes the CVSA Workshop in San Antonio, Texas, scheduled for April 19-23; the North American Cargo Securement Harmonization Public Forum, scheduled for April 19, also in San Antonio; and the industry vehicle training course, scheduled for April 6-10 in Kent, Ohio.

CVSA will automatically refund the full registration fee to individuals who were registered for the CVSA Workshop or the industry vehicle training course.

The CVSA Board of Directors meeting and lead agency contacts meeting that were scheduled for the CVSA Workshop will still take place but will instead be held virtually. Programs, regions and committees may still hold a conference call meeting, as necessary, in lieu of the in-person meeting.

For events and meetings scheduled for May and beyond, CVSA will closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak, carefully consider all information and updates from reputable sources, and keep the membership updated on the status of all planned future events.

For more information or if you have any questions, contact CVSA.
