The 2020 Annual General Meeting will go ahead as planned on Friday September 18, 2020 at 1:00 pm ET as a virtual event.

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in the cancellation of many events around the world. We concluded, a few weeks ago, that holding the Forum and Gala Dinner in Montreal on September 17-18 of this year is not advisable under the current circumstances.

The Board of Directors carefully considered various scenarios; however, it was decided that the best course of action for all is to take the extraordinary step to postpone the 2020 Forum and Gala Dinner to the Fall of 2021.

We have secured the Omni Mont-Royal Hotel in Montreal and will hold the event on Tuesday, September 28 and Wednesday, September 29, 2021.

We are pleased to announce that we will have the same important theme, “Healthy Start, Life-Long Impact: Eradicating Non-Communicable Disease” and that most of our speakers have confirmed their attendance for next year.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for understanding and hope to see you in Montreal in 2021.
