UPDATE ON CAST 2017

 

Like all of you, STAT leadership has been watching with heavy hearts the devastation Hurricane Harvey has brought to the Texas Gulf Coast and Southeast Texas.

 

We have received several inquiries regarding our upcoming conference in Houston. We want to confirm STAT is moving forward with plans to hold CAST 2017 in Houston, November 9-11. Staff has been in direct contact with representatives from the city of Houston and have confirmed that all facilities being utilized by STAT for CAST 2017 (George R. Brown Convention Center, Hilton Americas, Marriott Marquis, and Doubletree) are currently, and expect to continue to be, fully operational. None of the venues have sustained damage and are preparing to host other conferences and events that were scheduled to occur in the coming days. We will closely monitor the situation and will provide updates, if necessary.

 

Now, more than ever, this region of Texas needs our support as they work to rebuild and recover from this catastrophic event. STAT looks forward to supporting Greater Houston and the community any way we can after the storm and in recovery efforts.

 

STAT DISASTER SUPPORT EFFORTS

 

For our members in affected areas who are facing unimaginable challenges, please know that your science community stands with you and will be working to support you in the coming days, weeks and months. STAT is committed to helping our members and Texas families as they face the arduous process of recovery and rebuilding.  

 

The STAT Executive Board has approved a $10,000 donation to the Red Cross on behalf of our members to immediately support Texas Gulf Coast and Southeast Texas communities. Additionally, STAT will be seeking ways our association can support recovery efforts in affected areas, including opportunities to assist while we are in Houston in November.
