BRIESE 2021 Virtual Conference- Annual Education Series –

Due to recent events we are making changes to the BRIESE conference this year. With the COVID-19 pandemic and government mandated physical distancing restrictions in place, we will proceed with the meeting on a fully virtual platform.

If the distancing restrictions ease as we move closer to the date, we plan to offer a small social event. But, given the situation, details of such an event can only be confirmed in the days leading up the meeting.

The BRIESE speaker committee (Dr. Blumenauer, Dr. Carruthers, Dr. Wade) have confirmed and are welcoming some fantastic speakers, and we endeavor to meet our usual high standards.

We will provide further updates and registration details in the weeks to come.

Thank you for your understanding and patience and we look forward to seeing you Friday September 24 and Saturday September 25th, 2021.

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON!:
