Hurricane Maria Update

 COCSA 2017 CONVENTION - NOV. 2-4th.


To our COCSA Members, Speakers, Sponsors, Exhibitors, and National Partner Associations, 

Initial reports from the Caribe Hilton show that all staff and guests at the resort have safely weathered Hurricane Maria. The Caribe needs more time to assess the status of their systems to come to full functionality. Communication across the island is still spotty at best. We anticipate a full report by early Tuesday that will allow Congress to make an informed final decision by late Tuesday as to the status of #COCSA2017 going forward in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We ask all for your patience and understanding as we gather all the facts about the situation on the island to make our informed decision.

The government of Puerto Rico has indicated that San Juan will be the first to have power restored. The Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) is open for military planes today and will be open this weekend for commercial flights to assist with relief efforts.

The COCSA transition team and Board of Directors have a very solid Plan B in place as well as multiple other contingency plans and are ready to enact our plan should San Juan not be available for our conference.

We appreciate all the calls, emails, and displays of support from our members, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and partner national associations as we navigate this process. Congress has everyone’s welfare, safety and security at heart.

If everything is clear and we are able to go, I would like everyone to consider what an amazing opportunity this could be for the chiropractic profession. With all our state and national leaders present, what a powerful message we could display for chiropractic by supporting Puerto Rico in their economy and health!
