COPE Event Cancellations Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic
I hope this message finds you and your families all safe and well.
The past days, weeks and months have been exceptionally stressful times as many of us have been forced or voluntarily have closed our businesses to help “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 Virus. With this uncertainty about the future of our practices, many of us are seeing and feeling the strain in our pocket books.
In light of all of these challenges and for the safety of our members, COPE National will be suspending to a later date (TBD) the following:
- May 24th Workshop on Laser Hair Removal & Comprehensive Blend Technique in Chilliwack, BC
- October 2nd to 4th 2020 National Convention and AGM in Ottawa, ON
If you have already paid for your tickets, Members will have the option to be refunded OR your payments can be left as credit for the workshops and convention to come at a later time.
For all the members that have not paid their dues by March 1st, this is a friendly reminder that your COPE membership fees for this year are past due.
If you are anticipating a slowdown in your business and paying your dues would have a financial impact, you will remain a Member-in-Good-Standing until things settle around the COVID-19 pandemic. If however, you are able to pay your dues, it would be greatly appreciated.
If you haven’t already, please join COPE Members Facebook page.
Many articles and posts are being shared weekly. It’s also a great place to share news, ideas, challenges and to stay up to date on events for Members and our achievements for recognition of this field.
Our Public Facebook page is also a source of information related to our industry. You can find it HERE.
We have a forum now set up exclusively for our members. If you have equipment to sell, you can do so here as well as ask questions about anything pertaining to your practice or help you may need.
We are all feeling the fear and uncertainty of the unknown. Our Organization is here to help you as much as we can.
Take heart, this will pass.
