Dear CETAF Directors, CETAF Representatives and colleagues,
The 47th CETAF Governing Board meeting (CETAF47) is approaching very rapidly and we look forward to meeting you all in our first ever virtual General Meeting that will be held on:
We take this opportunity to heartly thank the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (MNHN) in Paris for hosting this meeting by providing the necessary technical and organizational support to run it online in the most effective manner. Though virtually, the structure of this CETAF47 meeting remains similar to previous meetings.
As always we have an intensive Agenda and a very large variety of issues to address. Moreover, the online format imposes on us certain limitations that we will try to overcome with the best of our capacities and enthusiasm.
We strongly encourage you to participate following the Guidelines for Participation that will allow the meeting to be developed both smoothly and timely.
On the other hand, we have several items to be agreed upon that will be subject to your votes. For that, you need to fill in the attached Registration Form by next Friday 8 October at 12h00 the latest.
If any change occurs after you registered and before the General Meeting starts, please let us know as soon as possible (Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Speakers are also kindly requested to share in advance your Presentations by Monday 12th of October, at 12h00 (you can send them to email@example.com). We need to ensure fluent switch and easy transition from one speaker to the following and for that we need your (much appreciated!) cooperation.
We are aware we face a challenge by having CETAF47 online and we regret not having the chance to meet you all physically and enjoy discussing with you tête à tête à Paris!
We look forward to seeing you –this time virtually–and having a successful and fruitful CETAF47 meeting!
Until then, stay safe and healthy!
With my best regards,
