Important information concerning postponement of the FIT Statutory Congress and the XXII FIT World Congress

To all members of FIT

Dear colleagues,

The current pandemic and global travel restrictions make it increasingly unlikely it will be possible to hold the planned FIT Statutory Congress and the XXII FIT World Congress in Varadero, Cuba, in December 2021.

In an effort to show solidarity with our Cuban hosts, FIT Council has resolved to request of its members a six-month postponement of both events until June 2022.

FIT is bound by its Bylaws and FIT Council sees no other option than to call a virtual Extraordinary Congress, in accordance with Article 53 of the FIT Bylaws, to request the approval of the majority of its members to grant a six-month postponement of the FIT Statutory Congress and the XXII FIT World Congress.

Details concerning the virtual Extraordinary Congress will be distributed to all members shortly.

Please note that activities concerning both events (registration, deadlines, etc.) are suspended until further notice.

With best regards,

Kevin M.J. Quirk
FIT President
