In these uncertain times, we wanted to reach out to you about what we are doing here at ADRBC to support you. As the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we want you to know that the safety and security of our speakers and guests remain our highest priority.
Accordingly, we regret to inform you that the 2020 ADRBC Symposium stands suspended until further notice. This decision has been taken keeping in mind the latest advisory issued by the Government of B.C. for mitigating community spread of this virus.
Given these unique circumstances, we will fully refund all registration fees that you may have paid. We will endeavour to process all refunds by the end of next week. Please feel free to write to us in case you have specific questions about this.
We would like to dedicate a special thank you note for those who joined us on this journey now interrupted. We are proud of the enthusiastic Symposium Organizing Team – SOT who volunteered with us this year and the speakers that have promptly accepted the invitations sent by the SOT. We were honoured to know that we can count on the Sponsors Support and the assistance of the Cooperating Entities and Official Podcasters.
ADRBC would like to invite you all, and others that receive this call, to join us for the 2021 ADRBC Symposium and the projects we will be developing to keep our community strong during this ongoing situation. ADRBC truly believes that together we can face and overcome any challenges that might appear.
Virtual Professional Development
At this time, our team is working on creating possible alternate plans for the benefit of our members. These efforts include exploring the possibility of holding the Symposium remotely and organizing webinars throughout this Spring and Summer to work towards the professional development of our members. We intend to reach out to you with specific proposals as these plans materialize. Please feel free to write to us in case you have any suggestions.
We wish everyone well and our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected to date.
