It is with great sadness that I have to inform the industry that the SPRA 2020 Conference and Awards dinner will not take place this year. We had a superb set of speakers lined up to talk to you on a range of subjects all linked on how Competence drives Confidence. But, as you know, Coronavirus has adversely impacted on all of us. Our top priority is the safety and welfare of our staff, our members, our other colleagues and stakeholders and their families. Although we hope that by June we will be seeing some light at the end of this very long tunnel, we could not guarantee it, so we have taken the responsible action to cancel until next year.
This also means of course that the SPRA Awards 2020 will not now go ahead either. Please note however, that all submissions to date will be rolled over and the Awards entry form on the SPRA website will remain open until at least the end of this year and into next so that members can upload projects and people information from 2019 and 2020 as soon as they can, and when it is convenient for them.
Members should note that at the moment, the SPRA Golf Day on the 9th of September is still going ahead, but we will reassess the situation in June when hotel cancellation fees could kick in. We hope to be able to see as may of you as possible there – I am sure we will all need to let our hair down by then! In the meantime, please do everything you can to keep yourselves and others safe and well.
