In an abundance of caution and the current state of the situation regarding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in North America, the FIAA Board of Directors has unanimously voted to postpone the Electrical Appliance Seminar that was to be held June 10-12, 2020 in Sherwood Park, Alberta.

Members already registered for this seminar will be contacted directly.

Our members’ health and safety are important to us. As such, we take matters of public safety very seriously and endeavour to follow the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer for the Province of Alberta. It is our intention to do our part in flattening the curve in order to limit the spread of this virus and not put our members or ourselves at risk.

Those already registered and paid for this Spring will be contacted directly about options in this regard.

Please stay safe, healthy and be sure to do your part during this pandemic by actively practicing social distancing and self-isolation.
