AEA hosts several events throughout the year that provide opportunities for tradition, camaraderie, and information sharing.
Postponed Industry Exhibition has now been cancelled
The AEA Industry Exhibition has been cancelled for 2020 and will be rescheduled for the April 2021. As you know, COVID-19 has impacted many U.S. military and most activities around the world. FLW’s priority is the health and safety of Soldiers, families and anyone who visits FLW. In the current conditions of this pandemic, it would be imprudent to conduct the Industry Exhibition.
To provide the maximum flexibility to attendees, we wanted to inform you of the rescheduling decision so that you can take the appropriate actions to cancel travel, lodging, and movement of other coordination issues. We will inform you when the new dates for the Industry Exhibition in April 2021 are finalized. In addition, we want to offer options for those who have already paid for booth spaces as you plan for this year and next year. The options we would like to offer are:
- Apply payments already made for 2020 to your same AEA booth space for 2021.
- Apply payments to become a magazine sponsor. Contact us for this opportunity
- Refund booth space payments
- Donate booth payment money to the Memorial Wall Fund. We can issue a W9 for you to claim this charitable contribution.
As always, we appreciate your support of the Engineer Regiment and AEA looks forward to providing support to our Industry Partners and the Engineer Regiment. Please Contact John Rather at 573-329-6678 to discuss rescheduling, cancellation, and refund procedures
AEA Industry Seminar
The AEA Industry Seminar slated for 30 July has been cancelled. We are evaluating options for a virtual seminar later this year. I will update you when we have worked out some of the concepts.
152nd Engineer Castle Ball
I am sorry to announce we are cancelling the USACE Castle Ball for 2020. While the 16 October reschedule date is still 11 weeks in the future, the rise and fall of the virus make it difficult to predict the condition that will exist at that point. Better to forgo the expense of planning the Ball that had a high probability of being overcome by events. For our sponsors, we are offering the same opportunities for applying their sponsorship to our other programs listed above under the Industry Exhibition.
