Conference Update

1. Travel bursary recipients (including Summer Students)

The CRA Travel Bursary program will no longer be in effect. Please cancel your travel arrangements. If you booked accommodations at the Delta Hotel by Marriott Québec via the link provided on the CRA website, the reservation will automatically be cancelled on your behalf by the CRA.

The CRA will automatically switch your registration from hybrid to virtual. There is no action required by you unless you direct the CRA otherwise.

2. ASM and Residents’ Pre-Course Presenters

All scheduled presentations will be delivered virtually at their originally scheduled date and time.

Speakers will be required to attend a virtual onboarding session with the CRA virtual platform provider in January, and further details regarding this will be communicated to you directly in the coming days.

3. Podium Presenters

Details regarding a virtual onboarding session with the CRA virtual platform will be communicated soon.

As the travel bursary is no longer required, Podium Presenters are no longer eligible for this bursary but will continue to receive complimentary registration — your hybrid meeting registration will be transferred to virtual only by CRA staff.

Please cancel your travel arrangements. If you booked accommodations at the Delta Hotel by Marriott Québec via the link provided on the CRA website, the reservation will automatically be cancelled on your behalf by the CRA.

4. Exhibitors/Patient Groups/Partners

If you opted to host either an in-person booth or a hybrid booth (in person and virtual), you will be offered the opportunity to switch to virtual only. CRA Member and Sponsorship Coordinator, Madalyn Membreno, will contact you to review your options.

5. Sponsors

All of your allowable registrations for the conference will be switched to virtual tickets. CRA Member and Sponsorship Coordinator, Madalyn Membreno, will contact you to address any questions or concerns.

As we are no longer hosting a meeting in-person, the CRA recommends that sponsors arrange for their Ad Boards independently.

6. Symposia Sponsors

All symposia presentations will be delivered virtually.  We are considering all options to provide optimal delivery solutions and appreciate your patience as we work through these logistics. CRA Manager, Educational Programs and Events, Claire McGowan, will contact you directly as soon as these details are available.

7. Small Meetings

As we are no longer hosting a meeting in person, all small meetings have been cancelled. If you wish to proceed with hosting your own virtual meeting, we recommend that you host a virtual meeting on Zoom or Microsoft Teams for example.
