ASEH Annual Conference
March 25-29, 2020
Delta Ottawa City Centre
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
ASEH Registration Fees - Donate or Refund - policies and procedures
Dear ASEH Members and Conference Attendees,
It has become clear over the last few days that we cannot hold the Ottawa meeting as planned, so we have decided to cancel the in-person meeting in Ottawa, scheduled for March 25-29, 2020. The individual and collective health risks are too great.
This still leaves several questions unanswered: Do we simply cancel this meeting, or do we try to reschedule later in the year?
As a member and supporter of ASEH, you should be aware that either of these options has serious financial consequences for the organization. At worst, this loss could amount to $250,000, or about half of ASEH's total bank account. A rescheduled meeting, if it was successful, might reduce these losses significantly.
The best way you can help is to donate to ASEH - perhaps by donating some of what you had budgeted for the meeting. It is easy to DONATE HERE.
We promise to provide more information and an explanation about why a cancelled conference will cost so much when we have figured out whether we are simply cancelling or whether we will try to reschedule.
Thank you as always for your membership and support.
Ed Russell, ASEH President
Sarah Elkind, ASEH Vice President
