Over the course of the first quarter VA-REA has been transitioning day-to-day activity with members, clients, and partners to become more digitally accessible. As part of its two year management contract with VA-REA, Secure Futures remains committed to fulfilling its obligations to continue to deliver results with and for VA-REA through value innovation. Although the pandemic circumstances moved our timeline for innovation up, VA-REA is thrilled to identify challenges and develop solutions the Alliance is likely to face in the direct and immediately began contingency planning to bring virtual solutions amidst this pandemic. We anticipate this will become an integral part of our strategy at least through the end of 2021.
VA-REA has applied a purposeful, consistent, and diligent methodology to select the best virtual platforms to ensure all of VA-REA operations can continue as planned in a virtual setting. VA-REA has slated all remaining 2020 events to be Virtual — with some flexibility for hybrid events pending public health recommendations — using digital tools to facilitate all events this year.
