May 1, 2020 — HOOVER, Ala. — The National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) announced today that it has postponed its 30th annual National School Safety Conference, originally scheduled for July in Dallas. The organization has rescheduled the event for August 5 – 10, at the original venue, the Hilton Anatole.
“After close consultations with the venue and the local visitor’s bureau, we determined that postponing our conference is unfortunately necessary,” said Mo Canady, NASRO’s executive director. “We’re grateful that the August date was available, and we hope that choosing it significantly improves the probability that people who are involved in school safety will receive the important information our conference offers.”
Canady said that NASRO will automatically transfer all registrations to the new date. Registrants who are unable to attend on the new date will receive an email message explaining how to cancel their registrations.
Canady also said that the hotel will automatically cancel all July room reservations in NASRO’s block and that guests must contact the hotel to make new reservations for the new dates. Registrants will receive email with a special web address through which they can rebook online, or they can call the hotel directly. He expressed confidence that airlines will allow registrants to rebook flight reservations without additional fees.
NASRO’s national school safety conference provides education and networking opportunities to school resource officers (SROs) and other law enforcement officers, as well as school security and safety officials, school board members, administrators and anyone interested in school safety.
Last year, more than 2,100 people attended the annual conference. It offers attendees an opportunity to complete on-site NASRO training courses at no additional charge; receive in-service training; visit an exhibit hall with the latest in products, technologies and innovations; and interact with SROs, school administrators, sheriffs and chiefs of police from throughout the country and world. Available training includes NASRO’s Basic SRO Course, ideal for law enforcement officers who are newly assigned to work in schools.
