"The health and safety of our members and guests are our top priorities during this uncertain time," says Jon Gorman, executive director, NetVU.

"We are incredibly grateful to our volunteers, business partners, Vertafore leadership and staff, board and committee leadership, and NetVU staff for the effort that has been put into Accelerate," says Joe Clabaugh, chairman, NetVU executive board of directors. "We are especially grateful to the dedicated volunteers who have committed their time to developing educational content for Vertafore users."

Gorman says the organization is communicating with registrants about refunds and will announce alternate networking and education opportunities in the near future.
