COVID-19 has swept through our lives and created a new reality for us all. In considering the implications for the SVRI Forum coming up in 2021, we have been mindful of the profound changes we have all experienced and the risks that travel and conference attendance will pose until better prevention and treatment is available for this novel virus.
After extensive consultations with SVRI leadership and partners, we have come to the decision to postpone the face-to-face SVRI Forum 2021 and hold it in 2022.
Although this is disappointing news, our new reality offers us an opportunity to meet online in 2021 through a series of virtual events and build the conversation in anticipation of SVRI Forum 2022.
The SVRI Leadership Council, Board and staff look forward to engaging with you in creative and thoughtful ways to design a series of virtual events in 2021 to build up to and inform SVRI Forum in 2022.
