ICEVI-Europe Professional Interest Group, Early Intervention Conference
Dear Participants of the Early Intervention Conference,
As a result of the special circumstances and measures taken in Europe in the context of COVID-19, it was decided that the ICEVI-Europe Professional Interest Group, Early Intervention Conference scheduled to be held on 23 & 24 April 2020 in Leuven, Belgium will not take place.
We are looking into the possibility to postpone the ICEVI-Europe Professional Interest Group Early Intervention Conference to a later date, probably in the fall of 2020. As soon as we have more insight into a possible new date, this will be communicated.
We would like to thank you for your understanding of the measures taken in light of these exceptional circumstances.
Hans Welling, President of ICEVI-Europe
Kathleen Vandermaelen, Board Member of ICEVI-Europe
Sonia Meys, Conference Chairperson
As a result of the Corona pandemic, ICEVI-world has decided to suspend the general assembly of ICEVI-world until May 2021. As a consequence, the board of ICEVI-Europe and the Israeli Host Committee have decided to postpone the 10th ICEVI-Europe Conference in Jerusalem, Israel, scheduled in that year.
We will inform you of a new date and place as soon as possible.
Hopefully you will all be fine in these exceptional times.
Hans Welling, President
Tomer Rosner, Chairperson Host Committee
