As the coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt our lives, we have understandably been receiving many inquiries concerning our annual conference and 50th anniversary celebration in Reykjavik, Iceland scheduled for June 22-24. We are well aware that the uncertainty over whether the conference will be held or not presents real challenges for participants, and thus hope to make a definitive announcement soon.
The CES has convened a COVID Planning sub-committee of the Executive Committee to ensure that the decision will be taken in a way that mitigates its potentially severe financial impact on the future of CES. We are gathering additional information this week and will send another update to our members and conference participants by next week. The situation is complex, and we ask for your patience while we ensure that we do the best for our shared organization. As a reminder, anyone who registers for the conference can request a refund up until June 1st.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
Stay healthy and best wishes!
Erik Bleich, CES Chair
