Over the past weeks, our Board has been assessing the viability of the EHF General Assembly in Rome on 22-23 May, hosted by our Italian member UAAR. Due to the current circumstances, we regret to announce that the event has been officially postponed.
We are aware that there may be some costs wasted as a result of this cancellation, in particular in regard to flights/transport and/or accommodation that have already been booked. Therefore, we advise our members to investigate their options for cancellation and/or reimbursement and not to make any new travel plans for the GA.
If necessary, the EHF will provide our members a formal letter confirming that the event had to be cancelled due to the virus.
As the COVID-19 evolves, we will assess the options for a 2020 General Assembly and will get back to our members as soon as an alternative arises. In the meantime, UAAR has volunteered to host the event in Rome later in the year, as initially planned. We express our heartfelt gratitude to them.
