2020 Spring Conference

The MFLA Board of Directors has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation and its affect on our Spring Conference. There have been some changes which have occurred in the last couple of days which have brought us to a very difficult decision.

The number of cases of the virus in Maryland has increased and Maryland’s State of Emergency remains in effect. In addition, The University System of Maryland has implemented protocols which include closing campuses at least until after Spring Break and implementing distance learning for all possible situations. The university system is also discouraging student/staff national and/or international travel for the foreseeable future.  Several of our local LEA’s have already initiated their own versions of protective measures, including limited or cancelled travel and elimination of extracurricular activities.

We have decided to err on the side of caution. We believe that, in order to protect the health and well-being of our membership, attendees, and presenters, it is in our best interest to cancel the 2020 Spring Conference. Thank you for your interest in MFLA and our conference!  We look forward to our Fall Conference scheduled for October 9-10, 2020.

All registrants who have paid through PayPal will receive their refund through PayPal within the next few days. MFLA will be in contact with all others to make appropriate arrangements. 

Please direct all inquiries to Conference Chair Emily Bugbee – ebugbee@ccps.org.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
