UPDATE: Safe Systems Summit postponed

It is with great disappointment that CSCRS is announcing that the Safe Systems Summit is officially postponed. The forecast for Hurricane Florence and its potential impact on travel to/from North Carolina, as well as potential flooding and damage within the state, make this the right decision. The safety and well-being of Summit speakers, attendees and event staff is paramount! CSCRS is working hard to reschedule the Safe Systems Summit. Please check back for updates on the rescheduled event. Read more >
