CBTU Statement on COVID-19

Mar 13, 2020

Greetings,

I am writing to keep you updated on the current status of the 2020 Canadian Conference. As you can imagine, we have been monitoring the situation associated with the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) closely.

As of now, we remain hopeful the 2020 Canadian Conference will proceed as scheduled, as we are still 60 days out. We will continue to monitor Health Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO) updates, as well as government updates to ensure we comply with their directives. Any changes to the event schedule or the conference itself will be immediately communicated to you.

We realize many of you have questions with regards to upcoming events. This is an unprecedented situation, and in light of that reality, we appreciate your support and patience. The health and safety of our members and their families continues to be our number one consideration and we will be guided only by that principle as we move forward.

In solidarity,

Robert Kucheran
