Dear Members and Friends,

We stand with our global community to support good public health practices and while we ourselves work remotely, per world bank group policy, we will continue to serve our membership through virtual means.

We are still proceeding with the preparation for our annual conference and immersion programs, as planned. We are cognizant that those plans may change, in which case we will inform you accordingly.

We will share with you regular updates and travel advisories as we move closer to the events.

In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy!
