BRITISH INDIAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION (BIPA)
BIPA Annual Conference 6th &7th June 2020 CANCELLED
Dear BIPA Members,
I am writing to you in unprecedented times with the country in complete lockdown in response to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. This is a difficult situation for us all and I hope you and your family are safe and well.
I am writing to formally inform you that due to COVID-19 BIPA Annual Conference 2020 scheduled to take place on 6 & 7 June 2020 at National Conference Centre (NCC), Birmingham, U.K. is cancelled. The BIPA Executive Committee had to make this difficult decision but we did not have any other alternative option. Due to the prevailing uncertainty regarding the duration of lockdown measures and for the first time in history of BIPA we will not be organising BIPA conference this year at all.
We are hoping to have a webinar (free) panel discussion in late July 2020 followed by virtual Annual General Body Meeting (AGM). The current EC will complete it’s 2-year term and handover to the new EC after AGM. We will of course keep you informed shortly about the details so that you have sufficient notice to plan attending the webinar and AGM once they are finalised.
BIPA is committed to helping protect health and safety of our members and the wider community in these extraordinary time.
Dr Santosh Mudholkar
on behalf of BIPA Executive Committee
