    After much discernment, conversation, consultation and prayer, the ATRI Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 Montreal Conference and move it to 2023.  A  discussion was held with the hotel management in Montreal and they suggested, because of the uncertainty of how Covid-19 will play out, that this would be the best way to proceed at this time.  They and we realize that even if the virus is contained and/or a vaccine becomes available that it may take some time for people to feel comfortable in travelling again to this city.

    HOWEVER…..THE CONFERENCE IN MONCTON, NB WILL TAKE PLACE IN 2022.It is our plan to hold our Conference at the Delta Beausejour from September 23-26, 2022.
