WASHINGTON, March 10, 2020 – The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) announced that it has made the prudent decision to postpone the HACR 28th Annual Symposium and Executive Programs, originally scheduled for April 27-30, 2020, due to the concerns for safety given the COVID-19 (coronavirus) emergency and the state of emergencies which were declared by the city of Los Angeles and the state of California on March 4, 2020.
The new dates for the HACR Symposium and Executive Programs will be:
- HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™– August 23-27, 2020
- HACR Executive Programs – August 24-27, 2020
- HACR 28th Annual Symposium – August 25-27, 2020
- HACR CEO Roundtable and Closing Dinner – August 27, 2020
“Our decision to postpone the HACR Symposium and Executive Programs is out of abundance of precaution for the safety of the attendees, sponsors, staff, and board of directors in anticipation of the unprecedented coronavirus crisis, which will likely extend into April,” said Cid Wilson, president & CEO of HACR. “We appreciate the support of our attendees and sponsors as we make this necessary schedule change. HACR is committed to hosting our annual programs in Los Angeles, an important city for our mission-driven work. We look forward to hosting an empowering series of programs on our new dates in August 2020. Our thanks to the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, our host hotel, for working with HACR to secure our new dates.”
