Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I hope this letter finds you healthy and well.
Given the current COVID19 Pandemic, we are adhering to all Alberta Health recommendations and requirements for physical distancing and the restrictions surrounding mass gatherings. In line with this, it is with regret that the Alberta Association of Insurance Adjusters has had to cancel the 2020 Convention.
I wish to thank all the sponsors who had committed to the event as well as all trade show participants who had submitted registrations. As we were closely monitoring the situation, any registration payments received were set aside pending a decision re the event. To date, no payments were processed, and they will not be. Also, thank you to all our Convention attendees! We regret not being able to see you this year but look forward to seeing you at our 2021 Convention!
Thank you to the Executive who put in countless volunteer hours to prepare for the 2020 Convention. These efforts were not in vain and will help to make our 2021 Convention a great success!
Although our Convention is cancelled, our Annual General Meeting and Executive Elections will still proceed as required by our Bylaws. We will hold this via telephone conference and hope you can join us. There is a quorum requirement and we do ask for any members in good standing to call into the telephone conference.
At this time, I would also like to put out a call for nominations! If you or anyone you know would be interested in volunteering and being a part of the Provincial AAIA Executive, please let me know! We currently are seeking volunteers for all positions except Treasurer.
The AGM will be held on Thursday May 28, 2020 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM. If you can join our AGM, please pre-register by emailing myself. Once registered we will send out the access information to you directly to ensure we keep this a secure forum. Please register by noon Wed. May 27.
All members in good standing and in attendance at our AGM will be entered for draw prizes! Up for grabs are three $100 gift cards and a free 2021 Convention Registration!
Thank you for all your patience and support of our Convention. We look forward to hearing your voices at our AGM and seeing your faces at the 2021 Convention!
Alice Lang, B.COMM., FCIP
Provincial President of
The Alberta Association of Insurance Adjusters
