With the increasing spread of Covid-19 across Europe, including the UK, this has led to government restricting movement and access to public gatherings. I have given consideration to our upcoming Annual Congress which had been scheduled for May 2020. As a consequence, I have made the decision to postpone the Annual Congress in May. I have asked SSTA Head Office to identify an alternative date for the Congress to take place in the Autumn.
