CSSE 2020 Professional Development Conference - CANCELLED
We have been formally advised that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, health and safety concerns, social distancing requirements and ongoing travel restrictions to the beautiful Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, our 2020 Annual Professional Development Conference in St. John’s has been cancelled.
It is disappointing to not have the opportunity to interact with our friends and colleagues, and we will miss the many moments of sharing and learning as a professional community.
While we will not be doing a “virtual conference”; we are working with some of our conference speakers to add them to our Wednesday Webinar Series, so you will still get the benefit of hearing their presentations. These Wednesday Webinars have been free to our Members, as we want you to be able to continue learning and thriving during these challenging times.
Events traditionally tied to our annual PDC such as our Annual General Meeting and CHSC course offerings will still go forward in a new format yet to be determined.
We are working toward both temporary and long-term solutions for our existing CHSC courses and future professional development and educational opportunities to be delivered virtually. We hope to start building our lineup of virtual courses in the next few weeks.
To our Conference Committee — we are grateful for the many hours you have dedicated to planning the 2020 Conference, and we look forward to turning our attention to planning what future conferences look like in this new COVID-19 reality. We are continuing to communicate with Destination St. John’s representatives to explore options to hold a future conference in St. John’s, NL.
For those of you who have purchased the early bird conference registration, our sponsors or exhibitors who have paid deposits, please contact our Head Office for refunds or transference to next year's conference in Edmonton.
