AASA cancels 50th Annual General Assembly event 
June 10, 2020AASA news.

At its 26 May 2020 meeting, the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of AASA took the very difficult decision to cancel the Annual General Assembly (AGA) which was scheduled to take place at Skukuza from 8 to 11 October 2020.   
    The devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on both aviation, travel and tourism, with domestic business travel just having commenced at four airports, and other airports to be added in phases over the next weeks, and no clear indication of when tourism together with regional and international travel will be authorised, has contributed to this decision.  
    The airline industry has been extremely hard hit with revenues cut to zero overnight when the lockdown commenced and this has resulted in airlines as well as all aviation, travel and tourism service providers, being severely impacted by a liquidity crisis and struggling to survive. 
    The financial impact will be felt long into the future and we believe the lead time to our proposed dates in October 2020 will be insufficient to register a recovery to justify an investment which we always request from our generous sponsors to fund the AGA, and our members to justify the expense of flights and accommodation at this difficult time. This is the first time to our knowledge in our history that we have made this decision. We are very sorry to have made this decision especially in this, our 50th year.         
    We shall still hold an Annual General Meeting during October 2020, but this will probably be on a virtual platform or together with a small event, depending on what the regulations will allow us to do.  We have made the call to retain Skukuza as the venue for our next event which will take place in 2021.  We may consider date options such as May / June 2021 or October 2021 and evaluate suitable alternatives.
