We regret to inform you that the 2015 JIFSAN Advisory Council Symposium, “Re-Tool Your Box: Communicating Food Risk in an Era of Social Media”, will not take place November 4 and 5, 2015. It is being rescheduled for the spring of 2016 with more details to come.
The contractual agreement between JIFSAN and the venue facility guarantees a minimum number of attendees, but registration numbers to date are below where they need to be to meet the contractual number. We believe this is due in part to the continued uncertainty over having an approved federal budget, which has prevented some government employees from registering.
Rather than incur financial penalties imposed by the venue, and to give federal employees the opportunity to attend, we have chosen to reschedule the symposium. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to seeing you at future JIFSAN symposia.
