Important Update Regarding AMED 2020

AMED logo

The College’s Annual Meeting and Education Day (AMED) is a popular event for members and staff alike. Part of the College’s Glenda McDonald Educational Series, AMED features educational activities and provides registered social workers and registered social service workers with an opportunity to network and learn more about the College’s priorities and accomplishments.

With this in mind, we are disappointed to announce that this year’s AMED has been postponed and will be replaced with a scaled-down version of the event in September. The College made this very difficult decision in light of the ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the circumstances and the scope of the event, it was no longer feasible to move ahead with AMED as planned for early June.

Coincidentally, this year’s theme, Diversity & Change in Society & Practice, remains quite relevant as we are all impacted by this pandemic. We have been – and continue to be – challenged by the circumstances, and we have had to adapt our usual ways of doing things, at least for the time-being.

We will be in touch as we finalize further details with respect to AMED.
