Election of new board members - Call for nominations

ESCAN will hold elections for up to four new board members in the Fall of 2020 via electronic ballot. As such, we are announcing a call for nominations among the ESCAN membership for the upcoming elections. ESCAN full members in good standing that are committed to the duties and mission of the society are eligible to become candidates either by self-nomination or by suggestion.

We aim to increase the diversity and inclusivity of ESCAN, and that includes the ESCAN board. As such, we encourage members from different backgrounds to apply to board membership in the upcoming elections.

Information on the call will be sent to members via e-mail.

2020 Conference in Budapest postponed to 2021

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the ESCAN 2020 Organizing Committee, the ESCAN Board, and the management of Asszisztencia Congress Bureau agreed to postpone the ESCAN 2020 Conference to next year. We trust that by then the global pandemic will no longer be part of our daily lives, and will not impact business operations, travels and conferences anymore. This decision was taken in the interest of all and serves the safety and good health of delegates, speakers, exhibitors, organizers, and service providers.

The 2021 conference location will not change (Budapest, Hungary) and the new dates are June 23-26 2021.
For more information please read the full statement at the conference website: http://www.escan2020.eu.
