Information on COVID-19 and the Society’s Conferences
Statement date: 18 March 2020
The Trustees have been in debate on a range of issues facing the Society as the COVID-19 situation continues to develop across Europe. They are monitoring the situation closely and are led by the Government, medical and scientific advice. As such, the Trustees have made the difficult decision to cancel the Irish Conference due to the impact and escalating scale of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 Irish Conference will now be moved to the University of Limerick
During this uncertain period, the NSTA will continue to host the planned programme of webinars to ensure your CPD is not impacted. You can view the full programme here.
On behalf of all of the Trustees and the Society, thank you for your understanding and continued support.
