Announcement date: Tuesday, 17 March 2020

On the advice of the Department of Health surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the local organising committee and the ANZSGM Council have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting, originally scheduled for May 27-29 in Melbourne, Victoria.

The meeting has been rescheduled until Wednesday 19 May – Friday, 21  May 2021 in Melbourne. We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us then and continue your support for the ANZSGM.  With the outstanding co-operation of our colleagues in Western Australian, the Perth ASM will be postponed to 2022.

 We will contact registered delegates, exhibitors and sponsors with further details.

This was not the vision for the future that we expected but these are unprecedented times. As health professionals working with the older population, we will be called upon to work in the front lines, to  provide high quality care and advocacy for the vulnerable in our society. We wish you good health and fortitude in the months ahead.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience.

Best Wishes,

Dr Rajni Joseph and Dr Louise Monk (Co-convenors)
