As news of the pandemic developed over the past months, the CAE executive has been partaking in multiple virtual meetings to discuss the final outcome of the 2020 meeting. Travel restrictions for both attendees, speakers and exhibitors would affect the attendance of the meeting and though some provinces are relaxing their COVID-19 protocols, those bans would still be in place for many. Ultimately, for the health and safety of all participants, we know cancelling is the right thing to do.
In the coming weeks, the Executive will be virtually meeting again to discuss how we can try and get some more content out to you the membership in lieu of the meeting. We have already had one successful webinar and are working hard to arrange more. If the opportunity arises for us all to meet again later this year, even briefly for a weekend, we will make every effort to do so with a program that the CAE is proud to present.
In the meantime, we encourage you all to reach out to the CAE Executive if you have any questions or concerns. We are all in this together.
Please stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.
Ms. Gaelyn Vernon on behalf of the CAE Executive
