Discovery 2003 Conference


RGCO has been assessing the uncertainty of the future containment of the SARS outbreak in Ontario and we have sought the advice of some of our stakeholders. To ensure the safety and comfort of our conference

participants, we have decided to postpone Discovery 2003 to September 21 to 24. Every effort is being made to transfer as many of the program elements as possible. We wish to thank the Toronto Marriott Eaton Centre for their professionalism and sensitivity to the needs of our participants. They have truly shown tremendous flexibility and understanding in these unforeseen circumstances.

For the convenience of our participants, registrations will be automatically transferred. For those unable to attend in September, a full refund will be issued on request.

We have cancelled all RGCO registrations at the Toronto Marriott Eaton

Centre. Should registrants decide to visit Toronto independently in April, they will need to re-book any existing reservations.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you understand our

proactive decision to postpone Discovery 2003. We look forward to seeing you in Toronto in September.
