Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The NESO leadership and management team have been monitoring the developments related to COVID-19 since the pandemic arose. Given the state of our world and our region, we have had to decide on whether to proceed with an in-person meeting in Montreal this November. The NESO Board has been meeting weekly to discuss and consider this decision. Although we do not know what our world will look like in November, we do know that our priority is the health and safety of our members. Therefore, we believe it is no longer practical or ethical to continue planning for an in-person meeting in Montreal in 2020.
We are working diligently to explore and execute possible alternatives to this year’s in-person Annual Meeting, and we will provide more information to you as soon as we have it in the coming weeks.
Wishing continued good health to you and your family.
