The National Executive Committee had been anxious to have a conference early in 2021 as the conference in 2020 was cancelled. However, after much consideration, we have decided that a conference in early March would not be appropriate given the very high rates of Covid-19 circulating in the community and the tremendous pressure that all front line healthcare workers are experiencing.

The NEC had a discussion and feel the best option is to meet again in March or April and decide if a conference in September/October 2021 is feasible. We do not want to make a final decision at the moment as the landscape may be very different in a few months.
