Update on CGS-SOS activities amid COVID-19 pandemic

Dear Colleagues:

In response to the current ongoing pandemic concerns, CGS-SOS executive committee is committed to follow the safety protocols issued by authorities. Therefore, the following decisions are made during this period to better serve our community:

  • All of our in-person gatherings, workshops, golf tournament and executive committee meetings are cancelled at least until September 2020. The situation will be re-evaluated by end of July 2020 and further notice with respect to the future in-person 2020 events will be provided.
  • We are in the process of securing a platform to facilitate our monthly lectures online, in order to continue to offer our members opportunity for professional development and to stay connected. We will send out additional correspondence on these lectures once it becomes available.
  • Considering the uncertainties in the timing for our future executive committee meetings and business conditions, the recruiting process for new committee members for the 2020-21 is put on hold. The existing committee members agreed to serve for one additional year to direct the CGS-SOS through this uncertain period. New committee members will be recruited for 2021-22 and the announcements will be sent out in February/March 2021.

Take Care and Stay Safe

CGS-SOS Executive Committee
