On Friday, Jan. 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order that resulted in the immediate suspension of immigration for persons from seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Libya, and Somalia). We value our colleagues from every country and as an international organization we are concerned that this ban may affect ADEC members.
This executive order is currently being litigated and there is a hold on its implementation. ADEC is not in a position to know if or how this will affect your ability to attend the ADEC Conference in Portland, OR in early April. If this travel advisory directly applies to you or your travel plans, and if you need a Letter of Invitation from ADEC to attend our conference as a presenter or attendee, ADEC is happy to supply this document specifying your role. Contact Jordan at email@example.com for more information.
If you are a presenter, we also advise you to print and bring a copy of the conference program listing your name as a presenter.
We look forward to seeing one and all in beautiful Portland in April 2017!
