2020 Dublin (Cancelled)
Over the past several weeks, the Executive Board of the IVSA, in collaboration with the conference directors in Dublin, have been monitoring and discussing the ever-changing realities associated with the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the planning of this year’s annual conference.
For the sake of public health and with admittedly heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel the 2020 conference.
We collectively owe a debt of gratitude to the Dublin conference team: Gerry Boucher and Iarfhlaith Watson. Over the past nine months they have worked diligently, efficiently, and creatively to organize this year’s regrettably ill-fated conference. And now they have enthusiastically committed themselves to hosting our conference next year. We greatly appreciate their positive energy, radical generosity, and unwavering dedication to the health and wellbeing of our community’s common good. Many thanks to you, Gerry and Iarfhlaith!
