Promoting Professional Volunteer Resource Management


In this section...

Dear Members, 

It is with much regret that the board is accepting the recommendation of the Conference Committee that we postpone our annual conference until the fall of this year, given the evolving global health crisis as a result of the spread of COVID-19. We recognize that many of our members work in hospital, long-term care or health-care facilities and their participation in the conference could have been restricted for many reasons. In addition we have noticed that other conferences and larger gatherings are being postponed or cancelled for public health reasons, and in light of these considerations, we felt that the only responsible choice was to postpone our own conference for the time being.

Those who have already registered will be contacted in the next few days to be offered the option to either defer their registration or receive a refund.   
Our Annual General Meeting will still be held on May 14th but we will look at hosting it virtually, perhaps combining it with some kind of webinar or virtual networking session. Please stay tuned for more information and we look forward to your participation.  

We thank you for your patience and wish you the best of health in these uncertain times.

On behalf of the PAVRO Board of Directors,
Aleksandra Vasic
