2020 CONFERENCE POSTPONEMENT NOTICE
The Coronavirus is creating Havoc around the world and disrupting business in a tragic manner.
We the Board of Directors of CPN along with Senior Advisor and staff have been studying this matter for the last 6 weeks carefully.
We have decided to postpone this year 2020 conference and reschedule it at the same place, The Westin Hotel in Cape Town in March 2021 (to be confirmed).
[Chinese New Year starts Feb 12, 2021]
Jessie is working with the Westin Hotel to ensure there will be no charge to your account for your Hotel reservation made through the CPN group link.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BOOKED THEIR ROOM: PLEASE CANCEL YOUR HOTEL RESERVATION BEFORE FEBRUARY 28, 2020
Your paid conference fee will be kept in your account for 2021.
The greatest risk to the principals of our membership is being quarantined for 14 days or longer in a transit airport because of being on a flight affected by one person. Our main concern is to protect each other and not expose anyone to any risk as a result of the Corona Virus.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation and patience.
Yours very truly,
ON BEHALF OF BOD
KEN SINGH, B.A., CITT, MCIT
"The Annual General Meeting of the membership shall be held during the yearly CPN Conference. The preferred time is in the spring of each year at a date and place (region) as pre-selected at the AGM during the previous Conference and at the bidding of the BOD. This will include early notification and an invitation to CPN members of the specific region (Europe/North America incl. Mexico/Central and South America/Middle East and Mediterranean/Asia/Indian Sub-Continent. Interested members will then be given a specific timeline to submit their interest to host the CPN Conference. Such expression of interest should be accompanied by a presentation of the proposed venue, capabilities, support from local authorities, possible sponsors etc.
Attendance of the annual CPN Conference is mandatory for all CPN Members. Only once in 5 year period, a member can ask for a waiver on the ground of extreme emergency. Only CPN Board will have the discretion to consider the request of waiver. Non-attendance will lead to a risk of automatic membership cancellation. In addition, when a company exceeds the permitted quota of once in 5 years under “extreme emergency” and fails to attend the Annual General Meeting, the condition of exclusivity for this company’s territory will be revoked and the Board of Directors will be allowed to set up a process for seeking an additional member for the involved territory, so this territory is always represented and the continuity of the CPN business on it is guaranteed."
