This message is unlikely to come as a surprise. Due to future uncertainties regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on health, travel, work, and other aspects of our lives, the CHAT Standing Committee and the local organising team have decided to postpone this year’s CHAT for one calendar year. We have secured a venue in Santiago, Spain for *5-7 November 2021* and the theme of ‘Pilgrim CHAT’ will remain the same – focusing on movement. Holding the conference in Santiago in 2021 will be particularly fitting. Next year is the next Holy Year on the Camino de Santiago when pilgrims will be walking the trail or returning to walk the trail.
Postponing the conference means that we are actively exploring the potential for alternatives to our traditional meeting. Something different, possibly many things, will be happening to replace Pilgrim CHAT in November 2020. Please bear with us while we develop our ‘Plan B.’ In other words, we will make further announcements in due course!
From us, stay well
