ASA Meeting 2021

 

Dear Members, you will recall a couple of weeks back we asked you all to send us your views on holding an ASA conference later this year and with a couple of other options such as holding a virtual meeting.

The response to our questionnaire was a little disappointing only around 50% of the members answered the question/vote. None the less we have to accept the results received is a reflection of what the ASA members wanted, unfortunately maybe some of you who did not reply may not be happy with the final result, but it was in your hands to reply.

The Results

The biggest vote 69.9 % was to postpone this year’s meeting to next year.  Which we will now cancel this year’s meeting to next year when hopefully Covid 19 will have become much less of a problem due to vaccine roll out around the world.

There was a further 13% of votes saying they would only attend a meeting if Covid 19 and or if the economy recovered this year. which is very unlikely to happen before October 2021.

What we did find a bit disappointing that only a very few members opted to have a virtual meeting as a replacement. Maybe due to time differences as our members are mostly in 3 different time zones, making it pretty much impossible to be able to speak with all members.

So now you have the information relating to holding an ASA conference & meeting in 2021 – its cancelled at the members request, which we would have also recommended due to the continued problems with Covid 19 and the associated travel restrictions and additional costs due to testing etc.

Best regards & keep safe

ASA Conference 2021

 

This is an open letter to all members; we want to hear back from each and everyone of you regarding holding our annual ASA Conference in 2021. You will recall last year we had to postpone this due to the Covid – 19 epidemics around the world which made it very unsafe to travel and due to many countries closing flights and boarders.

We also understand that some of you have suffered an economic downturn in activity due to Covid 19 effecting many businesses.

This year at present the Covid situation has not changed much, but with the worldwide vaccine programs being rolled out we hope that travelling will become safer and easier in the near future.

We know that many countries have presently imposed quarantine/isolation restrictions on arrival into their country, and in addition demanding a negative Covid test certificate before boarding a plane, and a subsequent Covid test on arrival which all adds to the cost of travel. But again, we hope these restrictions will be eased over the coming months as Covid becomes less of a threat due to the vaccination programs.

We would like to get your feed back regarding attending an ASA Conference later this year say in October if air travel becomes safer and more available and the cancellation of restrictions on isolation on arrival in the country, we will hold the conference in. Can you please let us know your thoughts to the following options, to enable us to make a decision what to plan for 2021?

Option 1) Yes, if safe travel and venue is available, I will certainly attend the conference this October, even if it is a smaller than normal Conference.

Option 2) I’m not sure at present if I would attend due to safety and economic concerns.

Option 3) No, I think we still need to give more time to ensure Covid does not reappear with a 3rd wave, and we should postpone the Conference to next year 2022.

Option 4) Should we look at an alternative by holding a virtual Conference meeting instead although this will have time differences to overcome.

Please let us have your answers by no later than the 5th March, so we have time to evaluate and make decisions for this year.

Send your replies and comments to Roy Loken

Many thanks & keep safe.
