***Update for 2020 Jacksonville Symposium*** as of 21 March

We did not come to this decision lightly but we believe that it is in the best interests of all our members, and community, that we postpone the 2020 Jacksonville Symposium.

It is MPA's intent to reschedule once we are clear of the current emergency and have confidence in the way ahead. We will keep everyone informed of the new dates when we have reached a decision.

For those of you that have registered for any events and wish to receive a refund please contact us at: info@maritimepatrolassociation.org.  If you wish to leave your registration as is, we will credit your account and apply it when new dates are scheduled. Either way we are standing to make this as smooth as possible for everyone.

As always thank you all for your continued support and we wish you all, and your families, good health during this challenging time.

Kind regards,

Your MPA Team
