September 9, 2021 - by Lee Shaiman. The LSTA Staff and I hope this note finds you and your family well and that you have been able to enjoy the waning weeks of summer.

After careful evaluation of the continuing impact of the pandemic and with the full agreement of the Executive Committee of the LSTA board of directors I have decided to postpone the LSTA annual conference, previously scheduled for November 4th 2021 to April 27, 2022. As many of you know, New York City, on August 2nd reimposed a number of restrictions on large indoor events and made further recommendations regarding social distancing and full day mask wearing. The New York Hilton, where we normally host our event is not yet open, although we are told to expect an announcement that the venue will re-open over the coming weeks.

The increase in cases since early July and the greater transmissibility of Delta-variant, including a significant increase in “break-through” infection has caused a significant number of our members across the country to delay returns to office or to further restrict business travel to only the most essential trips. In addition to discussing the many important issues concerning the loan industry, the Annual Conference provides an opportunity to network and to catch up with friends and colleagues. We believe that holding the event under the imposed restrictions would not allow for a fully successful conference. We have elected to postpone rather than revert to an additional on-line event for the same reason. We will continue to provide our topical and timely webinars, podcasts and conference calls throughout the remainder of this year and into the future. But the Annual Conference will not be held until it is safe to meet in person and under conditions favorable to normal social interaction of our membership.

Thank you for understanding and we will keep you informed of any news or further changes as we get closer to the new date.
