GLEON 20.5: Virtual Meeting

GLEON 20.5 Virtual Meeting (G21 Kick-Start), 3-5 September 2019

The purpose of the GLEON 20.5 virtual meeting is to provide a platform for the GLEON membership to meet and maintain momentum between meetings, as well as enabling communication with members who may be unable to be physically present at meetings. The GLEON 20.5 Virtual Meeting is a great opportunity to catch up on the latest happenings in GLEON, as well as an opportunity to look forward to the G21 meeting in Canada this November.
