March 16, 2020 - The Staff of CEE hope that you and yours are safe and well during this difficult period. As of this writing, I am fortunate to report that all CEE staff are doing well and that the organization has taken precautionary actions. Over the past month, we have assessed various internal and external scenarios for operations and upcoming meetings. Management has required that CEE staff work from home and avoid travel until authorities confirm otherwise. Management has also determined to hold Summer Member Program Meetings remotely. Details will follow, but we anticipate a series of collaborative “break-out” sessions held at times that work for participants operating across Pacific and Eastern Time Zones.
CEE installed cloud-based and other telecommunication capabilities in recent years that allow for effective remote operations across a majority of the Consortium’s market initiatives and other work. We intend to invest in additional capabilities to effectively run remote sessions. Accordingly, we anticipate supporting the shared pursuits of the membership with little or no disruption during these challenging times and hope to be able to meet in-person once again at the CEE Industry Partners Meeting in Salt Lake City, September 30 and October 1.
Should you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
On behalf of the organization, please be well and know that together (albeit while retaining at least 6 feet between one another) we can get through these difficult times with renewed compassion for one another and commitment to the important cause we share.
With sincere regards,
Ed Wisniewski and the Staff to CEE
