    Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we have no choice but to postpone our 2020 Pan-Africa Summit, scheduled for Johannesburg, 9-11 September; we plan to hold it in late 2021 (exact dates to be confirmed). Since it is so important for us to get together, we are exploring holding a virtual Summit on the same dates and will provide details soon.
