For those who have registered for the annual spring conference in Whistler on May 15th, 2020, please note that this event has unfortunately been canceled due to Public Health Order regarding COVID-19. Please see the message that was emailed to all delegates March 17th, 2020.
The BCTF has decided, based on consultation with the Ministry of Education and the Public Health Officer, to cancel all large gatherings until June 30, 2020. Regrettably, this will include our Whistler Conference scheduled for May 15, 2020. We are currently working on some potential options regarding how this will affect you and our Conference. We are asking you to hold off immediately canceling your registration until we have explored and finalized those options. One option that we are currently working on is to offer the conference, exactly as is, forward a year to May 21, 2021. Related to this option, we are exploring the feasibility of offering you the opportunity to transfer your current registration to the 2021 Whistler conference.
We are aware that some of you may be dealing with economic uncertainty as the Covid-19 closures affect families around the province, and the world. If you need to cancel your registration, please do so and our volunteer registrar will work on issuing your refund as quickly as possible.
We hope that you have a restful and healthy Spring Break.
