Update to New Law Librarians' Institute 2020 Event

After very careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the New Law Librarians’ Institute (NLLI) 2020 event that was set to take place place at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton from June 16–19, 2020 to ensure we do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19, and to accommodate those who are facing current and anticipated travel restrictions prohibiting their attendance. We want to ensure we are able to continue our tradition of connecting, sharing and learning together, but at a time that is safe to do so. We have made this decision factoring in the on-going uncertainty around COVID-19 and its potential impacts on the health and safety of the participants, speakers, and the local host community. 

If you have already registered, your registration will be automatically be refunded. We hope that you are able to join us for the 2021 event (dates to be confirmed in the coming months). 

CALL/ACBD sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. However, during this unprecedented time, delay of the annual national conference is a mitigation strategy to potentially reduce the impact of a national outbreak and prioritize the safety of our conference participants and crucial healthcare workforce.  We also trust that postponing the conference will permit more of our delegates to be able to attend the conference to share their exciting and important work.  

We understand some may have already made airline bookings to attend the conference.  Air Canada and Westjet are offering some limited opportunities to change flights.  If you have trip cancellation insurance, it may cover you in the event of a business meeting postponement; if you did not purchase trip cancellation insurance, we would encourage you to check with your credit card company as you may have coverage through them, depending on the card.  

We are most grateful for your understanding, and please do not hesitate to be in touch with our
National Office with any questions or concerns.  

Many Thanks,

Shaunna Mireau

CALL/ACBD President
