AURPO Annual Conference and AGM 2020
September 8 - September 9
Dear Prospective Delegate,
It is with much regret that due to concerns and uncertainty surrounding the COVID19 virus situation, the AURPO 2020 Annual Conference in Liverpool has been cancelled.
After much careful consideration, this is the unanimous decision of the AURPO Executive Committee. Our priority is the health and wellbeing of AURPO membership and it is deemed too great a risk given the unknown nature of the situation going forward.
There are obviously other factors to consider. We have taken into account the current situation and restrictions of universities and businesses (restrictions on booking future events), the ‘at risk’ groups (vulnerable persons), public travel arrangements for getting to the conference, the location of the conference (major city centre) and current information about the projection of the COVID19 virus.
Regarding the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM), I aspire to run this at some point before the end of 2020 at a venue to be decided. However, things are still somewhat ‘up in the air’ and it may be that even this is not possible. I will endeavour to keep all our members informed.
Plans are afoot to reschedule the Liverpool 2020 venue to 2021 – most probably 7th and 8th September 2021.
Until the, stay safe.
President of AURPO
