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]* <[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*
