Hello BSides family,
Considering guidance from local health officials and the situation here in Nashville, we have decided that we could not do an in-person event safely. While we considered attempting an online format, feedback from the BSides community overwhelmingly supported us suspending operations for BSides Nashville 2020 and coming back better than ever when it is safe.
With conference cancellation comes the lovely logistics of dealing with dollars, so please read below for your section of specifics.
We appreciate your patience and trust in BSides Nashville and will be reaching out to you individually to discuss options and provide any support you may need.
Many thanks for submitting your CFP, working with us as we fit you in the schedule, and then supporting us as we moved the date and the format, and now this. If you would like to present at BSides 2021, your presentations will have priority acceptance.
All the thanks for being patient as we make so very many decisions. There are a couple options for the attendee tickets, but first some background. When Winn Schwartau accepted the offer to be our keynote, since he is local to Nashville, we had the opportunity to donate funds that would have been used to cover the travel expenses to an organization of his choice. Winn selected the Innocent Lives Foundation. We would like to still be able to donate money to this amazing organization, so, for your conference tickets, there are two options:
- Full refund
- Donation to the Innocent Lives Foundation
Please let us know by August 24, 2020 if you would like a Full Refund.
We could not have a BSides Nashville without volunteers. I have worked with some of you for going on 5 years now, and it breaks my heart that I do not get to share this year with you. I have you on a list and will be reaching out for next year.
Thanks so much for everything. BSides Nashville is family and we will be together again. <3
Please reach out to me or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions,
-Jennifer A Samardak, President, BSides Nashville
