Starnet cancels 2020 Annual Meeting

Home COVID-19 Starnet cancels 2020 Annual Meeting

The Starnet board of directors has decided to cancel its 2020 Starnet Annual Meeting which was scheduled for May 14-17, 2020. The decision was made after the Florida Governor declared a state of emergency and changes in corporate travel recommendations for manufacturing partners were announced.

“Starnet remains committed to helping our Preferred Vendor Partners and Service Providers adjust to have a successful 2020,” said Mark Bischoff, president and CEO. “The staff will refocus our effort on dealing with the current situation through member best practice sharing as well as assisting our manufacturing and service partners complete their 2020 strategic plans.”

The board is currently looking at options for the co-op regarding meetings for the balance of 2020, with a special focus on creative ways to enhance member/vendor development and engagement. The Starnet Fall Meeting in Louisville, Ky., Oct. 9-11, is still scheduled.

Starnet will handle all hotel reservation cancellations directly with the hotel. However, if you have booked airline travel and/or secured a rental car for travel associated with the meeting in Amelia Island, take care of the required cancellations of those arrangements on your own.

If you have specific questions regarding your reservation, contact meetings@starnetflooring.com.
