Good morning, people,
We take note of the decision to cancel the Ridef 2020 in Quebec with great sorrow but also with great sympathy for our Canadian colleagues. The world situation did not allow an alternative to this decision and the Board of Directors supports it wholeheartedly, concerned about the danger that such a meeting would represent in the current circumstances due to the Coronavirus.
FIMEM now finds itself in a new situation that will require a different approach to the way we operate.
We need your help, you the responsible of the different movements in the world, you the former members of the Board of Directors, you the candidates for the future Board of Directors, you the persons in charge of the commissions and each one of you who have ideas to propose to us to allow us to function in a statutory vacuum.
The OC needs time to deconstruct this Ridef 2020 and to manage the costs it has already generated.
We call for solidarity: be patient and give the OC time to solve the various problems it has to solve before people are claiming refunds. Of course, we will keep you informed of the situation as it evolves, but we believe he must have time to absorb the shock and disappointment that this cancellation entails. We are close to you
We have the possibility to maintain the link between us, thanks to telematic exchanges during the July days already reserved for the Ridef or throughout the year.
This upheaval also gives us the chance to operate differently and to test new analyses. Let's make the most of it.
