COVID-19: Annual Meeting Update

As of March 23, 2020

 

SSC Annual Meeting Status:  Cancelled.

It is with great regret to inform you that the 2020 Annual Meeting and the allied Canadian Statistics Student Conference have been cancelled due to the rapidly deteriorating situation with COVID-19.
 

We are waiving all cancellation fees. 
Cancellation requests should be made by completing the form: please make sure you are logged in and complete the form here

 

There is an option on the form to donate part of your refund back to the SSC if you wish to do so. 
You may complete this form at any time.

 

Note that no refunds will be processed until after April 1, 2020.
 

Please be patient, as refunding each registered attendee will be a very labour intensive operation for our office staff, and it may take a while to process your refund. 
Also, please refrain from enquiring to the office about your refund, as that will only slow down the entire process.
 

We are exploring some alternatives, for example, to stream plenary sessions. Details will be announced at a later date.
 

The SSC is required to hold an Annual General Meeting before July 1.
We are exploring options to hold a virtual AGM, and will communicate details once we finalise the date and format of that meeting.

 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this difficult time. 

 

Bruce Smith, President
Statistical Society of Canada
