Place-Based and Future Focused

POSTPONED : ANREP Conference : Bend, OR
COVID-19 Update from Conference Organizers (as of March 18, 2020):

The ANREP Planning Committee and ANREP Board have been working hard to gather the facts and prioritize the health and safety of our ANREP community. As such, the ANREP 2020 Conference, hosted at Sunriver Resort on May 3-6, 2020 has been postponed


We made this difficult decision to cancel our May 2020 dates due to health concerns related to the spread of the COVID-19. ANREP Planning Committee, ANREP Board and Oregon State University are committed to the health and well-being of the communities we engage and serve.  We strive to demonstrate a culture of care for all, particularly during times of uncertainty and disruption and recognize the importance of proactive planning and frequent communication to inform and provide for an effective response to an infectious disease outbreak.


What happens next? Stay tuned!  The Planning Committee and the Board will continue to work together to determine a new date for ANREP 2020.  It’s hard to close the doors on 24 ignite presentations, 84 presentations, 12 special sessions/workshops, 37 posters, 5 mobile workshops, 4 ANREP Initiative meetings, 1 post-conference workshop, 1 post-conference field tour, 10 sponsors, and social networking!  We will be in contact about future plans.



Refund of Payment:  Refunds of the full registration fee will be issued by the same payment method that was initially used to make the payment (no fees will be withheld). If you paid via credit card or bank transfer, this may take up to four weeks to process and post on your account. If you paid via check, we will verify next steps within 10 business days of receipt of this email.

Sunriver room reservations:

As of Friday, March 20, 2020, Sunriver Resort is closing operationally for eight weeks, projecting to open on the 15th of May. If you reserved a room at the Sunriver Resort, the Resort will auto cancel your reservation and refund deposits. Below is the lodging website, and the Sunriver Resort phone number, 1-855-420-8206.



If you submitted an abstract and have received confirmation of your presentation then simply stay tuned. We are holding all presentations for the future date.



Should you have questions about the cancellation of the program or future ANREP conferences please contact both Shannon Murray at and Carrie Berger at


If you have questions regarding your refund or the process of receiving your refund please contact OSU Conference Services at


At this difficult time, we encourage you to take care of yourself and practice all the preventive measures as part of your daily routine to stay healthy and safe.  We thank you in advance for your patience during this time of high communications volume with our team.
