regret to announce that the 2020 ISSOTL Annual Conference has been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic

ISSOTL 2020 Cancelled

The ISSOTL Presidential Team, Board of Directors, and ISSOTL 2020 Planning Team regret to announce that the 2020 ISSOTL Annual Conference has been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our colleagues in Perth already have extended significant energy to planning an exciting event, and we know that the conference is a place for us all to share and develop important work, so cancelling the meeting is heartbreaking.

Having made the difficult decision to cancel the conference, we are now moving into the next phase of planning for what follows. Please watch for updates in the coming months about alternate, online events for our members to fill part of the void created by canceling the conference. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
