We are very disappointed to inform you that as the COVID-19 situation becomes more complicated and serious by the day, the leadership of HAPS has reluctantly decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference in Ottawa (May 23-27). We have been following announcements from agencies in the US and Canada, as well as monitoring statements from both governments. Today’s closing of the US-Canada border makes it clear that it will be impossible to hold the meeting, as well as unethical to gather hundreds together.
Those already registered for the conference have been sent personal emails explaining refunds. HAPS is suspending the usual refund policy and offering full refunds of registration fees.
We look forward to seeing our entire HAPS family of members, exhibitors, and other supporters at the 2021 Annual Conference in Albuquerque (May 26-30, 2021)
