A COVID-19 pandemic has been declared by the World Health Organisation. Accordingly, the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) is cancelling CMSF2020, which was scheduled to run over three days in Adelaide from Wednesday 18 March to Friday 20 March.
AIST member funds, service providers and industry partners involved in CMSF are now activating their Pandemic Plans, as is AIST. These plans include restrictions around gatherings of large groups of people and travel.
AIST CEO Eva Scheerlinck said the decision had been a difficult one but the right one in the circumstances.
“The health of our delegates, staff and industry partners is our priority and we believe it is in the best interests of all to not proceed with CMSF in Adelaide next week. As a not-for-profit member organisation we do not make this decision lightly and are devastated that we cannot go ahead with CMSF in its current form. It’s the first time in more than twenty five years that CMSF has been cancelled.”
Ms Scheerlinck said AIST recognised the important role CMSF plays in maintaining and enhancing the skills of those working in the superannuation industry.
“Together with our member funds and partners we are exploring options to potentially reschedule the event and are working to provide virtual online alternatives which allow our members and industry partners the opportunity to engage and learn in a different way.”
