ASMC continues to cautiously plan for the conduct of ASMC National PDI as scheduled from 27-29 May 2020.
Most of the DoD and USCG financial management workforces (as well as those of our ASMC Corporate Members) are out on telework status as our nation continues to drive social distancing practices necessary to overcome this extremely critical situation. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 infection status related to whether the extraordinary actions being taken by our federal, state, and local governments; private sector companies; hospitals; etc, will improve the situation to the extent that travel and group gathering restrictions are lifted and PDI registrants feel safe in traveling and participating in PDI 2020.
Approximately 1300 individuals have registered and reserved their hotel room for this valuable annual training event. By mid to late April, we should know whether the crisis will be sufficiently under control to be able to safely conduct National PDI. Again, should the crisis continue, such that we need to cancel PDI, ASMC will fully refund all registration and housing fees paid, with no penalty.
We appreciate your loyalty and support, and are doing all we can to continue to move this outstanding program forward, should this extremely critical situation be reversed and our nation returns to safe status related to gathering of groups to take advantage of valuable training and professional development activities.
