AECENS OFFICE UPDATE – COVID-19
Amid ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak around the world and close to home, we want to update you about what AECENS is doing.
Our office will remain open for business and is fully operational and we will be able to continue to carry out our work under changing circumstances.
As a precautionary measure and to ensure the health and well being of the staff, our members and their families the AECENS office will be closed to visitors and staff are prepared to work remotely off site but business will be as usual. The AECENS team continues to be available to connect with you by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are monitoring Health Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia’s recommendations around workplace wellness and safety and will make changes as required.
As it stands now we plan to move forward with our Annual Spring Conference however, we are delaying opening registration until we have a clearer picture of how the situation will change over the coming weeks and we will be monitoring that closely.
Communication plays a critical role during these challenging times, and AECENS is committed to sharing information as the situation evolves.
Thank you for your understanding and your support as we all move through this together. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us by email at email@example.com
