Message from President Joy Agnew

Thursday, March 19, 2020

joy agnew

This president’s message was supposed to focus on promoting the joint CIGR/CSBE conference and CSBE annual general meeting that has been diligently planned for well over a year by the local organizing committee in Quebec. Instead, I am sharing the news that the conference is cancelled. We hope to reschedule the conference once more information is available from authorities related to restrictions on travel and gatherings. Please monitor the conference website for on-going updates as the local organizing committee evaluates options for a rescheduled event. Thanks to Stephane Godbout, conference chair, and René Morissette for taking on this monumental task. I suspect many CSBE members will be willing to lend a hand if and when needed to pull together a rescheduled event.
