Pine Chemicals Association International

22 - 24 April 2020

Safety is a core value of the Pine Chemicals Association International and as such the health and well-being of our members, staff and the public is paramount. For that reason, PCA has decided that it is inadvisable, and impractical, to hold the 2020 PCA Spring Meeting and it has therefore terminated the meeting given the developing and growing safety concerns for our attendees and the State of Florida.

Question – Why was a decision made to terminate the meeting?

The decision was based on several factors, including, but not limited to:

Question – Where can I get up-to-date information related to actions being implemented related to the cancellation of the meeting?

Please visit the PCA 2020 Spring Meeting webpagefor updates.

Question – Will my fees (registration, special events, etc.) be refunded? When?

Yes, your fees will be refunded. We are presently working on how to do this most efficiently (i.e. direct refund, credit to account toward future PCA meetings, credit to account toward upcoming membership dues, etc.). You will receive more information from PCA about this soon. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we process the large volume of refunds that need to be made.

Please check the PCA 2020 Spring Meeting website for latest updates.

Question – Will PCA help with fees associated with the cancellation of my travel and hotel reservations?

PCA will work directly with the hotel to cancel each reservation within the PCA rooming block. PCA will not be able to help with fees associated with housing arranged outside of the PCA room block. Please contact your provider directly.

As to travel, most transportation providers have made special provision to address COVID-19 related issues. Please contact your transportation provider directly.

Question – What about other upcoming PCA meetings, will they be cancelled?

As of now, no decisions have been made with regard to other upcoming PCA meetings.

Looking forward, we will rely on the same criteria and input points applied in this case to assess the status of scheduled PCA meetings and events. Please consult event and meeting webpages for the most up-to-date information or feel free to contact us directly.

The Pine Chemicals Association Spring Meeting will be held in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida at PGA National Golf Resort & Spa from Wednesday April 22 through Friday April 24, 2020.

The Spring Meeting provides an excellent opportunity for networking with industry leaders from around the world, the ability to interact with our committee leaders and learn about key issues impacting our industry, and to participate in the Association’s Annual Business Meeting. Additionally, we will have a number of excellent presentations on relevant subjects.
