Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic and concerns about our participants safety, the decision has been made by SCIF to close AWLS for the summer of 2020. This cancellation includes work week, chapter leadership training and all educator sessions. As a result of this, we have sent notice to all registered AWLS applicants, Chapter Presidents and Sables Reps. We are offering to all who have signed up and confirmed applicants their choice of any of our sessions in the Summer of 2021. Once the dates for 2021 are set, we will notify these applicants so they may sign-up for the session of their choice.
If your chapter has already submitted sponsorship money to cover cost of AWLS applicants, SCIF can give you a credit on these funds towards next year or return the funds to the chapter. Please contact Karen Crehan, our Programs Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for this credit or refund. All applicants to AWLS are encouraged to immediately contact the airlines and let them know what has happened and to seek a credit or refund for airline tickets. The airlines may give credits or refunds due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but SCIF is committed to ensuring the health and safety of AWLS participants and feels this is the best course of action at this time.
