2020 AARFP Conference Red Deer

To Attendees, Exhibitors, and Sponsors,

To the 2020 AARFP Conference Attendees, Tradeshow Exhibitors, & Sponsors,

The health and welfare of the entire AARFP community is our top priority. As you know, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AARFP Conference and Tradeshow which had been scheduled for April 26-29th in Red Deer. Due to the continued outbreak and expansion of COVID-19, we will not be re-scheduling the Conference in the 2020 year.

With the significant uncertainty, the institution of travel bans and restrictions, communities declaring a state of emergency, and the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a global pandemic, this is the most prudent course of action.

We will begin the process to provide full refunds to all registrants in approximately one week.

We share your disappointment in this decision, but we also share a common commitment to doing what is best and right for our professional community and for all those with whom we engage and interact with.

Thank you for your understanding and support. Our thoughts go out to all who have been and will be impacted by COVID-19.
