The Planning Committee of the 2020 Western Division annual meeting in Vancouver, B.C. met this morning and has decided to cancel the meeting due to health concerns associated coronavirus (COVID-19). Everyone is in agreement that proactive measures such as social distancing and limiting large gatherings are necessary to slowing the spread of the virus and reducing the strain on our healthcare system. The British Columbia government has also limited gatherings to less than 250 persons.
As such, the Western Division and Washington-British Columbia Chapter of AFS have decided to cancel this year’s meeting in Vancouver, B.C. (April 13 – 17).
