With great anticipation, A.C.E has continued to prepare for International Student Convention 2020 in Thailand in conjunction with A.C.E.’s 50th anniversary. At the same time, our excitement is overshadowed by our desire for the safety and well-being of those planning to attend.
As you may be aware, the effects of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have altered many planned events worldwide, including some Junior and Regional Student Conventions. We want to let you know that the ISC venue in Chiang Mai, Thailand, as well as the host venue for the first week of Service Adventure in Bangkok, have become unavailable. This means that ISC and Thailand Service Adventure will need to be rescheduled.
We are still weighing the best possible path forward, and ask for your patience as we do so. It is our desire to hold ISC in Thailand in the coming months, when we feel it is appropriate to do so, even though it is likely to be after the current school year in some parts of the world. We are committed to exploring other possible dates in order to make this event happen. We suggest that those currently registered for ISC wait to see how the next few weeks will unfold before making a decision to cancel your registration. Once the new dates of these venues are released, any participant who wishes to cancel will be refunded all of their paid Registration and Participation Fees.
We will be in communication with you as soon as we are able to press forward. In the meantime, we ask that you join us as we pray, watch, and wait that the Lord will continue to guide us through this shadow and show us once again that “. . . all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
Thank you for your continued loyalty to A.C.E. and your support of A.C.E. Student Programs.
