COVID-19 Update – Postponement of ARUCC Biennial Conference to 2021
I am writing to you during these troubling times to provide news regarding our ARUCC 2020 Biennial Conference. After thoughtful deliberation and consultation, the ARUCC Executive Committee has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our long-anticipated Conference and Biennial General Meeting to June 20 to 23, 2021, in Niagara Falls, ON.
There is a certain irony to our 2020 Conference theme, “Thriving in a Time of Disruption” and the need to postpone the Conference. The ongoing disruption pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic means that our members need adequate time and space to focus their efforts on guiding their respective institutions/ organizations through the crisis. In the interests of public health, and especially with concern for the well-being of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, presenters, staff, and colleagues, we owe it to one another to postpone this year’s event and reconvene in Niagara Falls next year.
In the interim, on behalf of our greater ARUCC family of volunteers and professionals, your Executive Committee will continue to work diligently on a number of projects, including our ARUCC National Network which is currently in the RFP stage.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued trust and support in the important work that ARUCC continues to do. We are committed to helping foster the advancement of registrarial practices in Canada. And we know that our trials and tribulations during this current situation will provide rich and valuable discussion content for Conference sessions and symposia in the years to come.
We are working on the details for 2021 and will provide ongoing updates on the Conference website as they become available. Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.
Stay safe and stay healthy. I look forward to seeing you in person a year from now in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Sincerely, and with best wishes to all,
The ARUCC National Network launches a new website for the ARUCC Groningen & Student Mobility Project!
The national registrars’ association, ARUCC, and its partners, PCCAT, CUCCIO, and CanPESC, have launched a new website for the ARUCC National Network. The website provides information about the development of Canada’s first online platform for exchange of official, digitized documents and credentials related to post-secondary studies. Once created, the Network will improve the portability of official documents for higher education in Canada. With greater document portability, students will be able to access, transfer between, and transition into the workplace from Canadian post-secondary colleges and universities with greater ease.
