Aloha EWC Alumni,
We are very sorry to inform you that after much consideration, EWC management has reluctantly made the decision to postpone this summer’s 60th anniversary international alumni conference.
The East-West Center/East-West Center Association (EWC/EWCA) International Conference originally scheduled for June 30 to July 2, 2020, in Honolulu is being postponed due to growing global concern over the COVID-19 outbreak. Given the uncertainty and rapidly changing environment as well as concern for the health and safety of alumni and Hawaii residents, the East-West Center will reschedule the conference to the summer of 2021.
The EWC has decided to postpone the conference at this time to minimize hardship or inconvenience to alumni who have already registered for the conference and are beginning to make their travel arrangements. Postponing the conference was a difficult decision for the East-West Center to make. We have been planning and working on the conference since August 2018 but will now redirect our focus to planning for a memorable conference in 2021.
Thank you for your understanding. More information will be posted on the alumni website as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Mahalo,
Karen Knudsen, Director of External Affairs
and Noreen Tanouye, Alumni Coordinator
