King said she is very excited for the community to get to experience the summit. 

"I think the majority of people are still burdened with questions about the future after COVID. Everyone wants to have hope and positive visions for the future and we believe the 2020 Summit will help them to move along that path," King said. "We have received overwhelming gratitude and support from the community for moving forward with the Summit, especially with the line-up we have planned."
