Best wishes. Just a quick note to let you know that the SBCC Summit that was previously rescheduled for October 19-23, 2020, has been further postponed to September 20-24, 2021. There is a summary overview of the Summit at this link with connections to further information. Below are extracts from the letter from the Summit Secretariat and International Steering Committee informing of this change. 

Can we please encourage everyone who has registered for the Summit to reschedule and come to Marrackech September 20-24, 2021. If you wanted to attend the Summit, but the previous dates did not work for you, we all very much hope that we will see you Marrakech in September 2021. The CI will do its best to keep you up-to-date with the Summit planning and key milestone dates such as when registrations will re-open.

Extracts from the Secretariat and International Steering Committee letter.  

“As we consider where we are now with COVID-19, the Secretariat has come to the difficult conclusion that we should further postpone the International SBCC Summit event from the current dates of October 19-23, 2020 … (given) our commitment to hosting a safe event for participants, the Secretariat is planning to move forward with a face to face event in Marrakech, but shifting it to September 20-24, 2021.We believe by this time, travel will be feasible and that the value of the in-person connections for the community outweighs the value of holding a virtual event earlier.

Clearly, we have additional planning and coordination needs ahead as we think about the program content in the context of COVID-19 and the delay of the original event by over a year. But given the current situation and timeline, we wanted to communicate our current plans to you as soon as possible.

We have considered a variety of options on how to handle the registration fees, as we know this is top of mind for many people and are happy to share with you the available options:

• Roll Over Your Current Registration Fee to 2021: We hope many, if not all, of you will still be able to join us in Marrakech in 2021. In this event, we simply ask you to keep your registration fee with us which we will apply to your participation in 2021. The registration fee will remain the same for anyone who chooses this option.

• Designate a Substitute: If you are personally unable to attend, you can designate a substitute to attend using your existing registration fee. The registration fee will remain the same for this option as well.

• Request a Refund: If, for personal or institutional reasons, you are not able to roll over your registration for yourself or someone else, we will provide a refund less a 15% processing payment. We regret that we cannot provide a 100% refund. The processing fee is covering un-recoupable costs for the planned event in 2020, including upfront expenses and processing fees.

• Contribute your Registration Fee to Support the Youth Scholarship Fund: As you know, we are eager to ensure our younger colleagues have the opportunity to join us at the Summit. We would be very grateful if you are able to contribute your registration fees so that we can help support more of the next generation of SBCC professionals to join us in Morocco.

Additional details on these options will be posted to the Summit website by June 15, 2020.”

When that and other information becomes available we will feature on the summary of the SBCC Summit at this link
