Due to the current COVID-19 situation and jurisdictional and state agency budget restrictions, a decision has been made to cancel an in person Symposium scheduled for February 28-March 3, 2021.  This decision was supported by a Board of Director's vote. Please know this was a difficult decision to make, however, the Symposium Committee will discuss other possible options to serve the membership, such as a virtual event.  It is the committee's goal to continue to provide timely and educational information to EMAT's membership of the highest quality possible.
