2020 Annual Conference Cancelled


Please see below for an email sent to ticketholders for the Annual Conference

In light of the government’s most recent change of guidance yesterday afternoon, St. Catz have cancelled the PIBA annual conference. 

We recognise that, though disappointed, many of you will be glad of the certainty this brings.  The EC had been in regular communication with the college for the past week or so.  Until this morning the college’s line – in accordance with university guidance – was that we would have been liable for the full cost of the conference if we had not gone ahead.  We hoped and expected that St Catz would change its mind.  Thankfully, it has done so.

We are conscious that many of you use the conference as the mainstay of your CPD programme planning.  We hope to persuade as many of the speakers – many of whom had already prepared their talks – to deliver them at some stage later in the year, whether as part of an extended evening seminar programme, of the London and/or northern circuit winter conferences, or otherwise.  Further information will follow when we are in a position to plan mass gatherings once again.

Our constitution requires us to hold our AGM fairly soon.  We realise that, for many, this is the highlight of the annual conference!  We are therefore looking at ways to hold it virtually.  Again, further information will follow at some stage in the next week or so. 

Those of you who have paid will be refunded over the coming weeks, including those who had already cancelled.  Please bear with us in this regard. 

Stay safe, keep well, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.  PIBA 2021 will be a gala event!
