Information for members

28 July 2020

Dear colleagues and friends,

We hope you are doing well and staying safe.

Turbulent times, brought on by COVID-19, had a significant impact on our personal and professional life. We have missed opportunities to touch base with you on what is going on in FIAPAC.

Over the past few months, the Executive Committee and the Board discussed through a series of online meetings on how to deal with the practical consequences of the pandemic on our day-to-day management of FIAPAC on short and longer term.

This resulted in the following decisions – feel free to comment:

  • To postpone the FIAPAC Conference (due to take place in Berlin from 2 to 3 October 2020) untill further notice.
    • We still try to identify the best alternative dates for the rescheduled Conference and will share those dates with you as soon as possible.
    • We are considering to move to early/spring 2022 to remain ‘at the safe side’. Also, quite a few organisations have already planned their postponed conferences for autumn 2021 which leads to an overloaded calendar of events.
  • To postpone the General Assembly until the rescheduled FIAPAC conference ( date to be decided).
  • The current Executive Committee to continue in a caretaking capacity until the next conference.
  • The current Board to continue until next congress (also in care taking capacity).
  • Board elections will be organised about 2 months before the next conference.

Please mark your calendar: an online event will take place on Friday 13 November 2020. The programme for this and practicalities will follow in due course.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best wishes,

Sharon Cameron, President
Nausikaä Martens, Secretary
