POSTPONEMENT OF AMIC 23RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN BANGKOK
Dear AMIC Members and Conference Participants:
Given the extraordinarily difficult and uncertain situation in Thailand, especially in Bangkok, the Board of Directors of AMIC has decided today to postpone the AMIC annual Conference scheduled for July 9-12, 2014 in Bangkok.
The Board deeply regrets the disruption and the inconvenience this change of plans might cause. It was an extremely difficult decision to make as the local organisers had put in much effort to raise sponsorship, invite a Cabinet member as a keynote speaker, and make other arrangements for us to enjoy their Thai hospitality.
But after consultation with our Thai Board Member and other relevant authorities, the Board had to conclude that in the interests of conference participants’ safety and security, the event must be postponed.
The Board has started exploring other dates and, if necessary, other venues to hold the conference later this year. If nothing suitable emerges by July, the Board may cancel this year’s conference and proceed with next year’s conference.
The AMIC Board and Secretariat seek your understanding and patience. We will contact you as soon as new decisions are made.
