Statement from Susan Segal, president and CEO of AS/COA.

Dear Members and Friends,

Adapting to the current situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the organization continues to provide our members with pertinent content via private and off-the-record Webex events. We are currently hosting between five and seven very interesting policy events per week. We are also offering virtual gallery tours, cultural panels, and concerts.

We hope to deliver our regional events in the second half of the year. These events will include our key Latin American Cities Conferences, roundtables, and delegations, as well as the CFO Roundtables and our scheduled overseas working groups. Our offices will remain closed until further notice but our entire team is available via all means of communication. We want to stay engaged with all our members and constituents so please do not hesitate to reach out. We welcome any suggestions you might have for Webex programs or any other ideas on how our organization can help you navigate the current worldwide crisis.

Additionally, please remember to check out our online content as well as Americas Quarterly’s website for up-to-date information and interesting articles and commentaries.

We remain committed to all our members and look forward to working with you in these very challenging times. Thank you so much for your patience and continued support. All of us at the Americas Society/Council of the Americas hope you and your families stay well and safe.

Susan Segal
President and CEO
