Thank you for your patience. We understand the hard work that you have put into these events. We also want to ensure that all attendees and organizers are safe.
We have spoken with our venues, and the Church Center is closing early. NYC schools and municipal buildings are closed, and storm warnings have been issued. As the wind and snow will get worse throughout the day, we will be rescheduling all parallel events from 12:30 pm onward, to ensure that everyone can reach home safely. The 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM sessions will continue as planned. The Morning Briefing will be held as well at 8:30 at UNHQ.
If you are in an afternoon session and would like to reschedule your event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we reschedule your time slot for Thursday or Friday.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we hope you stay safe and warm.
