RV 2013 Cancelled
1. Regret to advise that due to circumstances beyond Army control RV
2013 has been cancelled.
2. Due to Federal budget restrictions DND has capped conference expenditures at $25K making it impossible (at least for this year) to conduct RV 2013.
3. CIA Council in a telecon last night determined that it would be imprudent and not cost effective to hold a May CIA AGM in Halifax outside the RV umbrella.
4. CIA Council will meet by telecon next month to discuss options for conducting CIA business and preserve beneficial trade show contacts.
5. Cancellation of conference arrangements at this time should not result in out-of-pocket costs to CIA.
6. Cancellation of individual member pre-booked accommodations in Halifax is recommended.
7. Since all were advised flight arrangements were on hold pending DND confirmation no out of pocket costs will be borne by CIA members.
8. Due to transitioning to a new computer platform electronic reply confirmations cannot be sent so an ack of this msg is requested.
9. Direct any questions to undersigned.
