Tucson Arizona 2022 (Rescheduled to Jan 2023)

Conference of Latin American Geography January 3-8, 2022 has been rescheduled due to COVID concerns

Note from CLAG Board: 

24 December 2021

Postponement of the Conference of Latin American Geography (CLAG) - Tucson 2022 -  to January 2023
Dear CLAG 2022 Registrants and CLAG Members,

We write today with disappointing news that the CLAG Executive Committee in conversation with the organizing committee in Tucson has made the difficult decision to postpone the CLAG Tucson meeting until January 2023, despite our earlier optimism that we could move forward with the conference and make it a safer meeting by only cancelling field trips. We reached this decision based on a host of factors: the rapidly evolving public health crisis due to Omicron; deteriorating travel conditions; increasing cancellations by registrants in last few days; and numerous breakthrough cases amongst vaccinated and boosted attendees of the recent in-person AGU conference in New Orleans. Given that the in-person aspect of CLAG meetings is one of the key benefits we have opted to push the meeting forward to January 2023, rather than have a fully remote conference now with hope we will be able to safely gather next year.

As you can imagine, the unfortunate holiday timing of this cancellation poses some difficulty for the local organizing committee and Board in terms of financial commitments. We ask for your patience as we sort out the details. Know that it is our intent to refund as much of registration fees paid as possible. We will be in touch with you to share details as soon as we learn them on our end and will keep you updated via the conference web page (https://geography.arizona.edu/CLAG2022) .

In the meantime, we encourage you to take steps to cancel or reschedule your travel plans. We hope airlines will refund or reschedule your tickets and hotels will accept cancellation.

Thank you sincerely for your support of and interest in CLAG. We wish you happy holidays, time with loved ones, and above all else, health. We hope to see you in Tucson in January 2023!

Sincerely, 

Kristen Conway-Gómez, Professor and Chair

Executive Director, CLAG
