TORONTO - The Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada has announced it is cancelling its June 4-7 national convention. According to the association, "Due to the growing concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Canada and the world, AWMAC has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AWMAC National Convention scheduled for June 4-7, 2020, in Toronto, Ontario. We will still proceed with the AGM on June 5, 2020, which will be held virtually. Additional information will be released once available."

AWMAC said it will contact all convention registrants to advise how refunds will be issued. Those who have sponsored this event will also be contacted. 

According to AWMAC, "AWMAC will continue our partnership with the AWMAC Ontario Chapter to bring you our 2021 AWMAC National Convention. More information regarding the 2020 AGM and 2021 convention will be provided as it becomes available.  This was not an easy decision, and we are all disappointed that we will not be able to get together and celebrate the industry this year. The health and safety of our members, partners, and all other stakeholders is our utmost priority.  We appreciate your cooperation and support as we move forward through this unprecedented situation."
