ACA 2020 Conference and COVID-19

11 Mar 2020 1:11 PM | Anonymous

Dear Archival Colleagues:

Because of concerns about COVID-19, the Association of Canadian Archivists has received questions about the status of our June conference. We share your concern and have been monitoring developments on COVID-19. We want you to know that the ACA’s 45th Annual Conference will continue as planned at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, 10 to 13 of June.

We will continue to monitor the situation and re-evaluate as may be needed. We recognize that some universities have issued statements on academic travel and we will work to determine how to manage these statements and advisories.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our members, speakers, exhibitors and other conference attendees. Health Canada authorities continue to provide strong assurances that Vancouver is a safe city to visit and that the risk to Canadian travelers coming to Vancouver remains extremely low.

The ACA assures you that your safety is our priority. We are committed to offering you the best in professional development and the invaluable opportunity to spend time with your archival colleagues. We hope you’ll join us in Vancouver this June.

Best Regards,

Loryl MacDonald, ACA President
