Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, the 15th Asian Regional Conference scheduled in November 2020 was postponed. As soon as we finalize the new dates we will inform you of the detailed plan.
As the growing escalation of COVID-19 outbreak has brought the world to a grinding halt, we had to duly follow the guidelines of CDC and WHO, in light of the growing concerns of the conditions prevailing in our country. After close consultations with our I.I. Hyderabad Chapter Committee and with the Iemoto, Chairperson and HQ, we’ve come to a difficult decision to reschedule our 15th Asian Regional Conference. Having spent a year preparing for the Conference, we were eagerly looking forward to hosting the ARC as per the schedule in November 2020. Needless to say, we were genuinely upset and disappointed with the deferment. This was, sure enough, a heartbreaking decision, but not nearly as much as the thought of putting our registrants’ and guests’ health at risk. We understand that ensuring the wellbeing and safety of ARC registrants is the utmost priority in the present pandemic situation.
However, things are changing rapidly and despite the many unknowns, we are working in close coordination with HQ to finalise the dates tentatively for Feb/Aug 2021 and will share more information about our detailed plans by mid-July. We would highly appreciate your understanding, patience and your continued support on our responsible course of action in these times. We sincerely appeal and request all the registrants to kindly cooperate and continue to stay registered with us.
In the meantime, stay safe and stay well.
Ho-Kiku A. Vineetha
President and Conference Chairperson
