After careful consideration, dialogue with key stakeholders and legal counsel, as well as considerable evaluation of the evolving concerns surrounding COVID-19, the NLBMDA Board of Directors has decided to cancel the traditional in person ProDealer Industry Summit, scheduled to take place October 7-9 in San Antonio and transition to a virtual experience over the same dates.

The association has been intently monitoring recent developments regarding COVID-19, specifically in the state of Texas and determined that the only path forward was to cancel the in person event and transition to a virtual experience.

NLBMDA will be sharing more information regarding the new ProDealer Industry Summit virtual experience in the coming weeks and ask that members still save the dates of October 7-9 to join the virtual experience.

Association officials encourage anyone who has booked a room at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter to contact the hotel to cancel your reservation.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jonathan M. Paine, NLBMDA President & CEO directly at jonathan@dealer.org.

“On behalf of the National Lumber & Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) Board of Directors, I want to express that the health and safety of our conference attendees is and always will be our first priority,” said Paine.
