In light of the world wide situation with COVID-19, we are feeling sad but wise in our CanTRA Boad of Director's decision to CANCEL the 2020 CanTRA Conference, Celbrating 40 Years of Leadership, and the Pre-Conference Mentoring Clinic, which was set to take place at Olds College in Olds, Alberta, on May 29-31st.
Of utmost importance in this decision has been the health and well-being of our delegates, members, volunteers, staff and their families. Safety, in gathering for this event, could not be assured, and therefore the cancellation was inevitable.
We are forever grateful to CanTRA Board Member and Conference Chair, Shelene Wiliams and her team, for their care and attention in the intricate planning of every aspect of this conference. We commend her, her conference committee and the volunteers and staff of Mount View Special Riding Association, for all their hard work, before and throughout this difficult time.
Conference delegates can expect to receive a refund of their registration fee, by cheque, in the coming weeks. We ask for your patience in the carrying out of this complex administrative task.
We are very sorry that we will not be able to meet and greet and share our knowledge toether in May. Let's look ahead hopefully to CanTRA Conference 2021.
Get out enjoy your horses if you can, but stay safe in the weeks ahead.
Keep Calm and CanTRA On!
