New Date: December 8, 2020
Following our decision to postpone the 2020 Prepaid Symposium in light of the progression of COVID-19, we have pushed the Symposium to Tuesday, December 8, 2020. The health and safety of our guests remain our top priority, so we will continue to monitor the situation in the meantime to make sure that the Public Health Agency of Canada deems in-person gatherings safe by then.
Thank you to our members, sponsors, speakers and delegates for supporting the 2020 Prepaid Symposium. We look forward to seeing you later this year. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
