Dear WAM members,


We hope you and your families are keeping safe. We know many of you are concerned about refunds of your registration fees for the WAM 2020 conference which we had to cancel. As you can imagine, cancelling the conference has involved identifying and managing financial commitments, among other things.  We hope to have a clear picture of our financial standing by the end of this month, and on that basis report on our process for refunds.


We know members will understand a portion of the fees will need to be retained to look after administrative costs that did not go away when the conference was cancelled, and to cover the subscription to the Journal of Management Inquiry that is included in the registration. 


Thank you very much for your patience as we sort this out. We need a bit of time to make sure WAM is kept financially secure, but also that our members are looked after as they should be. We will be in touch in the next 12 days to let you know how refunds will be managed.
