Convention cancellation or postponement

NIBA may cancel or postpone the Convention due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to Acts of God, terrorism, war, strikes or industrial action, fire, explosion, inevitable accident, breakdown of property, changes in law, or pandemics or global health crises.  Due to the nature of the event, it may be reasonable to postpone the event to a later time and/or to change the location for the Convention.
