Avenue Plaza Hotel - Naga City
Dear PCS Fellows, Residents, and Friends:
After lengthy discussion, thoughtful consideration, and out of an abundance of caution, the Board of Regents of the Philippine College of Surgeons has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone indefinitely the 46th Midyear Convention that was set to take place on May 6-8, 2020 in Naga City, Camarines Sur. We know how much members look forward to this gathering each year; the leadership, volunteers and staff work all year to make this event happened. Based on Proclamation No. 922 issued by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on March 12, 2020, declaring the entire nation under the State Public Health Emergency due to COVID-19 and the latest guidance issued by the National Government, it wa clear to us that not holding the convention was the right course of action. Our health, safety and well-being and those of your family, attendees, staff and communities are our top priority.
We thank you for understanding the extreme difficulty of this decision. Know that we had your best interest in mind.
Stay health. We will be following up soon with additional information.
