On the recommendations from the provincial and municipal governments, and the current situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, WEAO regretfully announces that the 2020 WEAO Technical Symposium and OPCEA Exhibition, scheduled to take place from April 26-28 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has been cancelled.
Plans are currently underway to hold the WEAO Annual General Meeting (AGM) with remote access allowing our membership to participate in the AGM online. Details concerning the voting technology and the meeting in general will be provided once they are available.
WEAO is also investigating the option for the technical session presenters to provide their presentations to WEAO members using a remote recording technology. Again, details will be provided once they become available.
Registration fees and exhibitor fees will be refunded in full. We hope to complete this task by March 31.
These decisions were made with the best interests of WEAO membership and conference attendees, exhibitors, presenters, and sponsors in mind, given the exceptional circumstances presented by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
WEAO will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and we are committed to the health and safety of our members and registrants.
On behalf of the WEAO Board, thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
