Congress 2020  

  • BPW International Congress: 2020 - Postponed

    May 12, 2020 - Rescheduling Announcement from BPW International President, Dr. Amany Asfour:

    All my very warm regards to you. Wishing you all and all BPW members with all your loved ones to be safe and healthy. As you all know that our BPW International congress was scheduled to be on August 21-25, 2020 in Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista. As many of you have already sent requests to postpone the congress due to COVID 19, and as the organization of the congress at the scheduled time was not possible. After negotiations with the Hilton hotel, the hotel agreed to cancel the contract with no cancellation fees as per the impossibility clause in the contract as the COVID 19 is an act of God and is beyond the control as A force Majeure. Hence, the financially binding contract with the Hotel that was signed last triennium is now cancelled. This will give us better chances to have lower registration fees for the congress and have different service providers.

    As per our governance documents, the executive decides the time and place of the congress. The executive will discuss the best options for the rescheduling of the congress and will come back to the International Board with all the details and all the options for your opinions and input. We are really looking forward to having our BPW International congress and meeting with all our BPW sisters across the world to celebrate our 90th Anniversary as this congress is really a historical celebration in the history of our organization.

    Wishing you all to be safe and healthy and all the BPW members and the loved ones to be safe and healthy.
    With all my very warm regards
    Amany
