GA OF THE HSB POSTPONED
Dear HSB member,
It will not surprise you: in accordance with the advice of RIVM, the General Assably of Members (GA), which was scheduled for April 3, 2020, will be postponed. Accordingly, the workshop and the presentation of final papers of students, traditionally prior to the GA, is also postponed.
A new date for the GA depends on a number of factors, the most important of which are the course of the COVID-19 virus infection and government measures.
The Corona virus disrupts the planning of many things, such as booking options for meeting locations, but also other events such as the FIG “working week” in Amsterdam (10-14 May 2020). As a board, we also consider it important that nominated students can present their thesis on time and that the winner can be a candidate for IFHS student award.
For the time being, the board is focusing on a workshop and GA at the end of May 2020 at KIVI in The Hague.
You will be informed of the details in time.
It goes without saying that the HSB will conform to the recommendations of RIVM, whereby an extra safety margin will be taken for your and other people's health.
