Updated 19FEB2020: The Executive Board wants to thank our Member Associations (and other potential attendees) for taking the time to complete our survey on their conference attendance.
We reviewed the responses and the implications for our conference in Singapore. Roughly half of the Member Associations planning to attend, still intend to travel to Singapore. Some eighteen Member Associations are still undecided on whether they will attend.
In absence of strong indicators that it cannot go ahead for health reasons, the Executive Board still intends to proceed with our conference as planned.
Singapore is widely praised for its thorough and effective handling of the epidemic. The authorities are confident that the Conference can go ahead in the safest possible circumstances - click on their letter. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and the advice of the local authorities. It is obviously in the interest of the Federation that we can have a majority of Member Associations represented in Singapore, but the health and wellbeing of our attendees continues to be our main concern.
The Executive Board commits to communicate a final go/no-go decision by Sunday 23 February, 1600UTC.
