Postponement – ARC Conference 2020

Hi everyone,

I am writing to provide everyone with an update regarding the developing COV-19 pandemic.

Based upon the speed at which things have been moving today, and a rapidly increasing crackdown on institutional travel, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the ARC Conference at this time. We want to make sure that you all get the 30th anniversary conference that you deserve, and that is unfortunately becoming less and less possible day by day.

At this stage, we are looking at potentially rescheduling the conference for a date in late June, 2020. There is a lot to work through before we can confirm that, however, so please bear with us as we work through the logistics of this switch. We will be able to provide you with more information early next week regarding the status of your conference registration payments (for those who have already booked) and a revised conference date.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We sincerely appreciate all of your support, and wish you and your families well – please stay safe out there.

Best wishes,

Greg (on behalf of the ARC Council)
