Update on EPAS 2020
The EPC received significant feedback on the spring 2019 draft of EPAS2020 during the Conference of June 2019. We would like to thank everyone who provided feedback for their valuable contribution.
At this time, the EPC is reviewing, considering and incorporating the feedback received. We aim at having a revised draft of the document ready for circulation to membership in late 2019. Feedback on this revised draft will be collected over a brief period of time, considered and incorporated and a final draft of EPAS2020 will be submitted to the Board of Directors in March 2020.
Once ready, the newest version of the EPAS2020 draft will be circulated to membership via email and posted on this page.
