Dear members,

In light of possible concerns pertaining to the COVID-19 coronavirus and its impact on international travel, we are sharing several important updates related to upcoming FSC events.

The health of our members and staff is of the utmost importance to us and we are monitoring the developments of this coronavirus outbreak very closely. As you may know, we have already chosen to postpone the African and Asia Pacific regional members’ meetings. Additionally, we have postponed all planned travel by FSC staff to China and will be taking additional precautions if necessary.

Based on official assessments of the current situation, preparations for the FSC General Assembly in Bali, Indonesia from 11-16 October 2020 are continuing as planned. 

In the event that the risk assessment changes in such a way that the GA will be impacted, we will immediately communicate any information or decisions via the FSC GA website https://ga.fsc.org/en , in our newsletters, and per email to all our members.

If the GA is postponed and/or the location changes, we will reimburse registration fees or sponsorship as needed.

More information about the developing coronavirus situation and associated risks can be accessed via the links listed below, as well as other reliable news sources such as Reuters.

 If you have any questions, please contact Guillermina Garza at g.garza@fsc.org
