** ISHA 2018 Conference & AGM rescheduled to April 20th/21st **
The ISHA executive committee had noted the well-publicised forecast for extremely severe weather towards the end of this week and accordingly held an emergency teleconference meeting on Tuesday 27th February.
The committee were unanimous in their decision that in order to ensure the safety of attending delegates/speakers/exhibitors, that we were regrettably left with absolutely no option but to postpone our annual conference & AGM that was due to take place this weekend. Fortunately, our hosts at the Sheraton Hotel were extremely understanding of our predicament and were kindly able to accommodate us in rescheduling the conference to the weekend of Friday 20th/Saturday 21st April.
We would like to confirm and reassure all delegates who have already booked and paid their conference fee via Eventbrite, that they will have their registration automatically transferred to the rearranged conference weekend. People who had also booked accommodation at the Sheraton Hotel for this weekend, are advised to contact the hotel as early as possible to rearrange their accommodation to the rescheduled weekend in April.
In the event, however, that any delegates had already booked and paid via Eventbrite, but are not in a position to attend on the rescheduled dates, we can duly refund their registration fee in full, provided that they contact Laura Tully by email at firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm on Thursday 1st March.
Anybody who had been unable to attend this coming weekend, but would now be in a position to attend on the new dates in April, can register for the rearranged conference via the previous Eventbrite booking link: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/irish-student-health-association-conference-2018-tickets-42234874647 We will be providing further details in due course in relation to the rescheduled conference, including any updates regarding the Conference Programme, if there are any amendments to be made to same.
The ISHA executive committee would like to sincerely thank everyone for their patience and understanding given the unforeseen and unprecedented circumstances that have forced us into this decision to reschedule our 2018 Conference & AGM to the 20th/21st April.
