COVID-19 Response and Continuity Plan for 2020
Updated Monday, May 18, 2020 – New York, NY – As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, ClubVMSA has canceled all in-person physical events for 2020. Going forward, ClubVMSA will focus on providing world-class virtual events, content and connection opportunities with networking and breakouts.
Cancellation of In-person physical Events
All scheduled in-person physical events in 2020 are canceled, including:
- Enterprise Meetups (MMC in Boston, US Cellular in Chicago, TR in Minneapolis)
- MSP/Supplier Summits (New York and San Francisco)
- Direct Sourcing Summits (New York, Minneapolis and Belgium)
- Conferences (VMSA West 2020 and VMSA East 2021)
Prepaid Tickets for Canceled Events
All payments made for canceled event tickets are credited in the member’s account and are valid to redeem through June 30, 2021.
Use ticket credit for Sponsorship and get 10% more!
To encourage companies to use their ticket credits in 2020, they may trade in $1.00 worth of ticket credit for $1.10 worth of sponsorship opportunities to any 2020 event. For example, if a member has $2,000 in credit for prepaid tickets for VMSA West, they can exchange that credit for $2,200 in sponsorship opportunities. Ticket Credits may not be used for membership dues unless a member wishes to upgrade their Contributor membership to higher tiers such as “Power Player” or “Community Leader”. In order to earn the additional $.10 on the dollar, companies must use the entire credit before September 30, 2020 and be members in good standing with ClubVMSA.
We understand and are deeply sensitive to the financial strains the present public health crisis is placing on many of our businesses. As we all know, the current situation is constantly evolving. Once we re-establish in-person events, we will be able to advise members of what the ClubVMSA policy will be regarding refunds.
Prepaid Tickets for Postponed Events
All prepaid tickets are eligible for transfer to a co-worker or credit of equal value for an in-person event anytime through June 30, 2021.
ClubVMSA will continue to innovate, evolve and create during this most challenging time. The evolution of our business to virtual is now fully launched in the following events:
- Daily Industry Video Chats (12:30-1:00pm ET)
- Monthly Virtual Enterprise Meetups – 4th Thursday of every month
- Virtual MSP/Supplier Summits – 2nd Thursday of every other month
