Due to the Federal government shutdown, the Gulf of Mexico Alliance is cancelling the Gulf of Mexico Monitoring Community of Practice and mid-year Priority Issue Team meetings in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The Education and Engagement Team business session scheduled for January 23rd is also cancelled. However, the Visual Messaging 101 on January 24th in Biloxi, MS, will go as planned.
Please cancel any associated travel reservations with the aforementioned meetings. Once the shutdown is lifted, the Alliance with Team Coordinators will work to reschedule the workshops. We hoped for a resolution that would allow us to hold the meetings, but given the attendee distribution, workshop content, and contractual obligations, this simply isn’t feasible.
The Education and Engagement Team invites those interested to participate in the half-day session: Visual Messaging 101 with MSU’s TV Station Director, David Garraway. Use this link to register and simply indicate day two.
Please stay in touch with your Team’s Coordinator with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we sort through this unexpected event.
