Dear Jocelyne (Trecia, et al)

I hardly know where to begin.

Jocelyne:  as a retired & renewed (reborn?) member of APLA, I can assure you that retirement is no impediment to attending APLA. I look forward to seeing you in 2021.

Trecia: sad news indeed.  I had hoped to see you, and many others on this listserv, in 2020.  But - a pleasure deferred.

Best to all of you. Keep well!

Tom

This is sad though not unexpected news. Such a disappointment for those who have worked so hard toward APLA 2020. It helps to see this merely as a postponement, i.e. all the hard work is not lost.

 

This was to be my last APLA, as I am retiring in June. I looked forward to seeing all my APLA friends one last time, the chance to say fair well after thirty years of these annual gatherings.  The APLA community is warm and wonderful and it has sustained me. For me, the best part was the relationships that I developed as part of the organization. But of course being a member has been professionally enriching too.  I have learned a lot and been inspired year after year. I always came home from APLA with renewed energy and sense of purpose.

 

Well, I’m not gone yet, so this is not goodbye, just thank you to all of you who continue to contribute to APLA and to work on behalf of our community.

 

Jocelyne

Dear APLA members, invited 2020 conference guests, and library colleagues -

 

It is with deepest regret, and concerns for all involved during these uncertain times, that the Board of the Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA) - upon advisement of the Public Health guidelines in effect due to the COVID 19 pandemic, and in conversation with the 2020 Conference Committee - has decided to cancel this year’s 2020 APLA Conference to be held in early June 2020 at Acadia University,  in Wolfville Nova Scotia.  The APLA conference is a cherished time for all our members to gather, socialize, touch base and be inspired.  It was not an easy decision, and the Board wishes to thank all the Conference Committee volunteers for their continued dedication, and inspiration – and also all our conference program participants and supporters, for volunteering to give presentations and workshops to our members and library colleagues.

 

The 2020 Conference will be postponed until spring 2021.  

 

·        The new dates for the 2021 Conference will be Tuesday June 8th to Friday June 11th, 2021.

·        The 2021 Conference location will be Acadia University,   in Wolfville NS.

 

·        Program: Everyone who has accepted the offer to present is automatically accepted for the program in 2021.  We will be in touch in July to confirm whether you are still able and willing to present in Wolfville. If you have any questions about the programme please get in touch with [log in to unmask] .

 

·        Refunds: For those who are already registered, please get in touch with [log in to unmask].  We are waiving the cancellation fee. 

 

We very much appreciate your patience while we work through the efforts of postponing the 2020 conference, and rescheduling the conference to spring of 2021.  If you have questions, please get in touch with us at [log in to unmask] . We will be posting information on our website shortly. 

 

And for APLA Members, the APLA Board will be in touch with details in late April 2020, with regards to the arrangements for the 2020 APLA OGM (Ordinary General Meeting).

 

Thank you,

 

With kind regards,

Trecia Schell,

APLA President, 2019-2020
