NPAA Conference Update
The NPAA considers the safety of our members to be our utmost
priority. Our heartfelt support goes to members and their families
that have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
It is prudent as a national board that we promote measures to minimize
the negative impact of Sars-Cov-2 on members, their families, and
The pandemic led to the implementation of many bans
to protect the public from the spread of the Sars-Cov-2 virus,
resulting in events and conferences being placed on hold or canceled
across Canada and the world. As a result, the NPAA has decided not to
hold a conference in 2021. The NPAA realizes that some members may be
disappointed by our decision and would like to assure you that it was
not an easy decision given the significance of the submissions we
received and the caliber of speakers who were expected to present.
We believe our decision to cancel the physical conference in 2021 is the
safest option for our delegates, presenters, and sponsors. The NPAA
understands and appreciates the NPAA members’ need for continuing
education activities as such we channelized our energy into working
with sponsors to organize webinars at least once every 2 months. This
situation is temporary and we will be organizing our usual annual
conference as soon as the pandemic is under control and the relevant
authorities provide permission !!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list for the AGM.
