Coronavirus (COVID-19)

9 March 2020

by The Chair Team

The current Coronavirus situation is of concern to all of us. Rest assured, the Committee are monitoring the situation and following advice from Public Health England.

The Convention doesn't take place until August, and by then the situation will be much clearer. We are optimistic we will be able to go ahead with the Convention as usual, and we will proceed on this basis unless we are advised otherwise.

If things change we will keep you all fully informed. At present our normal policies apply: if you have an attending membership but will not be coming, you should contact where your membership will be passed on to the next person on the waiting list.

If you have any questions or concerns then please email We will maintain a list of frequently asked questions and clarifications here.
