A Message From the SYFA President Regarding the Coronavirus and the 2021 Spring Conference.

Dear SYFA membership,

The board of the SYFA regrets to inform you that we will be CANCELING the upcoming Spring Conference on April 22nd and 23rd. Upon careful review and consideration, we believe it is the most prudent course of action considering the continued effects of the COVID-19 virus. Be assured that our utmost priority is to ensure the health and safety of individuals at our events.  Considering the dynamic nature of the situation, we believe this is the most responsible course of action to ensure we in no way contribute to the further escalation of COVID-19.

In an effort to provide pertinent and timely industry information to our members, we will be developing a series of articles over the next months and sending them via email to our membership.  These articles will be written by industry experts in their respective fields and include their contact details in the event you would like more information.  We hope that you will find value in these articles and should you have a suggestion for a particular topic, please do not hesitate to let us know.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and look forward to hopefully seeing you again at our Fall Conference November 4th and 5th, 2021.  If you have any further questions regarding the cancellation please reach out to Rodney Turner (

With Regards,

Daniel P. Sistrunk
President, SYFA
