Dear Build Reuse Members,
We hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy in this incredibly challenging time. Thank you for sending us your thoughts and feedback through the survey we shared last month.
As you know, before this pandemic fundamentally changed all our lives, Build Reuse was planning our annual Decon & Reuse conference in partnership with ReUSE Minnesota. Given the continued uncertainty around travel and large gatherings, and the immense personal and financial stress of our members, Build Reuse has decided not to host Decon & Reuse in 2020. This has been a difficult decision, as we all cherish this annual time to connect with and learn from each other. In the months ahead, we will be exploring other ways to bring the membership together, support one another, and continue advocating for building reuse in communities.
For their part, ReUSE Minnesota is moving forward with a virtual conference, ReUSE2020, planned for July 13 and 14. ReUSE Minnesota has been a fantastic partner and we encourage you to check out this online event, which will bring together speakers to discuss reuse, rental, and repair.
We hope to see you all in person when it is safe and feasible to do so. In the meantime, please reach out to us with any questions and concerns.
