The challenging situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic prompted thorough consultations with our partners and supporters to decide the way-forward regarding our annual meeting.  Considering the current information, trends, and projections, we considered the risk of infection, lock-down measures, restriction on gatherings, travel ban, financial constraints, and pressure on re-scheduling priorities during this trying times. 

In view of the above, the Section-EXCO has decided to postpone the annual meeting to 4-7 October 2021, at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg South Africa. Registration fees remain the same as for the 2020 planned meeting and registration will open in March 2021.
