March 18, 2020: CPS Annual Scientific Meeting Cancelled

Dear CPS Community,

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting, due to take place May 19-22 in Calgary. We know that this will come as a disappointment, though not a surprise.

We have not taken this decision lightly; however, given the current state of events, and our overriding concern for the health and wellbeing of our members, and community at large, it was the only sensible course of action.

The Bright Side

Though we would love to be able to meet in person, to catch-up, shake your hand, or give you a hug, this situation presents us with an opportunity to bring you content in a new way – one that will be accessible to all, and available when it’s convenient to you.  Nothing will ever replace getting together in person (and we’re already looking forward to next year in Montreal!) but this gives us the chance to try something new and add another string to our bow.  As we speak, the Board, Leadership Team and colleagues at Base Consulting are planning ways to bring all our incredible speakers and content to a screen near you! Stay tuned!

We know you have questions…

And we have some answers, though not all, yet. Please bear with our team as we navigate these uncharted waters.

Will you refund my registration fee?

  • Yes, absolutely. Please send us an email requesting a refund. However, if you are able to do so, please consider donating those funds to our Society we would be extremely grateful. Our ASM provides much of our annual operating budget and we will feel the loss this year.

How will I get my money? How long will refunds take?

  • Funds will be returned via the method paid (either cheque or credit card). Given the volume of transactions currently taking place across all platforms, please allow several weeks to receive your funds.

Do I need to cancel my hotel reservation?

  • If you have booked a room at the Hyatt Regency Calgary, there is NO NEED to contact the hotel. They will cancel your booking automatically.
  • If you have booked a room at another hotel then please cancel directly with that hotel.

What do I do about my plane ticket? 

  • Please contact your airline directly to cancel your booking. Should you require an official cancellation notice from CPS, please contact our office.

For all other questions, please contact our hard working team at the CPS Office.

The Board and I look forward to bringing you further updates about our plans (some of which will take place during the dates of the canceled ASM, May 19-22) as and when they happen. In the meantime, please keep yourselves well.

With gratitude for your understanding,

Fiona Campbell, CPS President
On behalf of your CPS Board of Directors and Leadership Team
