AFRES ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Date to be confirmed, Mulungushi International Conference Centre

Covid-19 ANNOUNCEMENT 
POSTPONEMENT OF AFRES 2020 CONFERENCE 


Dear AfRES community,


After carefully considering the spread of the corona virus across the globe and across our continent the AfRES Executive team, in consultation with the board, have had to take the decision to cancel the 2020 AfRES Conference to be held in Lusaka in September.


While consideration was given to the fact that by September the situation might have normalised , we have taken the view that the risks associated with going ahead were just too high for the Society, our presenters, delegates, sponsors and other stake holders.


We acknowledge that this cancellation decision will inconvenience some members of our community and ask that you understand the unique circumstances under which we have had to make this decision.


On behalf of the entire AfRES community, we would like to thank the Southern African Chapter and Conference organising committee for the hard work that went into the preparations of the 2020 conference. Thank you very much for supporting AfRES during these unprecedented times. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in Zambia in 2021.


Kind regards

AFRES 2020 Organising Committee
