University of Georgia
Monday, November 8–Friday, November, 12, 2021
After much consideration and continuous monitoring of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel 2021 Midwest Institute and 2021 Northeast Institute. We know you were looking forward to returning to the classroom this summer, and we recognize that this news is frustrating to learn. 2021 Southeast Institute, or Centennial Institute, will be moved from June to Monday, November 8 – Friday, November 12. All attendees associated with all sites are welcome to join.
