2020 CSME Congress postponed till 2021

On behalf of the CSME 2020 Organizing Committee, we would like to inform you that the 2020 CSME Congress that was to be held in Charlottetown, PE on June 21-24 2020 will be postponed to the summer of 2021. This postponement is due to the COVID-19 outbreak; the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, organizers and committee members are our greatest priority and at this time we believe that it was necessary to reschedule the Charlottetown CSME Congress for next year.
