The Kentucky Narcotic Officers’ Association (KNOA) is announcing today that because of the ongoing global pandemic, it is unable to hold its 2020 KNOA Annual Training Conference scheduled for September 9-10-11, 2020.
“After careful consideration, The officers and executive board, unfortunately, feel it is in the best and safest interest of our membership to cancel our Annual Conference this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In making this decision, the KNOA considered feedback from members, conference participants, state and local guidance on large gatherings, budgetary and travel restrictions placed on police agencies, and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We also heard from many exhibiting companies who are now operating under travel restrictions for the foreseeable future. This decision was made for the safety of our members and attendees. The civil unrest and general climate in Louisville at this time toward law enforcement was also a consideration.
The officers and executive board have voted to continue your membership at no cost until the 2021 conference can be held. Therefore there is no need to renew your membership this year as that has already been completed. We hope by next spring to be able to announce a conference date and location for the 2021 KNOA Annual Training Conference.
In closing, everyone stay safe and please feel free to make any suggestions for next year’s conference as we will begin a slow planning process.
Steve Cobb, President
