SOAP 52nd Annual Meeting
2020 SOAP Annual Meeting – Cancelled
Dear SOAP members and #SOAPAM2020 attendees,
We are grateful for your outstanding commitment to our Society and appreciate that your preparations to attend the 52nd Annual Meeting in Halifax have been on hold.
COVID-19 is upon us, and we remain individually and collectively devoted to ‘Raising the Standard for Each Woman Everywhere’. As such, it is our obligation to cancel our SOAP 2020 Annual Meeting in Halifax scheduled for May 13-17, 2020.
Many of you will be providing care to COVID patients at your institutions and your dedication will be needed. We have launched a SOAP COVID-19 toolkit, that includes Interim Considerations for Obstetric Anesthesia Care related to COVID19. Please check online https://soap.org/education/provider-education/expert-summaries/interim-considerations-for-obstetric-anesthesia-care-related-to-covid19/ for content that we hope you will find helpful.
If you made hotel reservations, please proceed with cancelling these reservations accordingly. The reservations will not be automatically cancelled due to the cancellation of the Annual Meeting.
Registration fees will be refunded in full in the coming weeks. Additional information concerning refunds will be provided as it becomes available.
We will deeply miss the opportunity to gather in person, but very much look forward to staying closely connected in the coming months. We will be working on alternative offerings to the #SOAPAM2020 (2020 SOAP Annual Meeting); you will receive updates as these become available.
We wish each and every one of you and your families health and strength in these difficult times.
