A Message to LMAC Members and Industry Partners:
From a strong sense of obligation to protect the health and well being of our employees, customers, and Canadians at large amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to postpone our LMAC 2020 Convention and Canadian Livestock Auctioneering Championships in Brandon/Virden.
The new dates will be September 10, 11,12 & 13, 2020. The host hotel and host market will remain the same.
In light of the clear and strict recommendations of Canadian and provincial health officials for social distancing, we are compelled to act swiftly and decisively to ensure the safety of our members, employees, industry partners and families to combat the spread of COVID-19. Along with the collective governmental and societal efforts to contain this pandemic, we hope that this decision contributes to bringing us closer to putting this behind us, getting the marketplace back to normal, and once again fully enjoying the relationships that we’ve nourished within the LMAC membership and with our valuable customers and service providers.
LMAC takes its responsibility as an industry leader and representative of the marketing sector in Canada very seriously. For this reason we have decided that it is in the best interest of the industry and the health of Canadians that we do our part to combat the spread of Covid-19.
The success of our convention is based upon the people who attend and support our annual event. Without you there is no LMAC! We hope that you will support our decision to change the dates of our convention and continue to plan to attend.
For those who have already registered online, your registrations will be honoured for the new dates. If you require a refund, please contact me and we will give you a full refund.
Now is the time to be safe, be smart, and to take care of yourself, your family, and your friends. We are very hopeful and optimistic that with broad co-operation and prudence, this will pass, and the cattle industry will again be back to normal.
Thank you for your understanding and doing your part.
