The Edmonton Bar Association is a Society incorporated pursuant to the Societies Act to promote and afford opportunity for friendly and social activities of its members. The EBA provides a forum for its members to consider, discuss and take action in respect of all matters pertaining to the practice of law, the legal profession and the administration of justice in the City of Edmonton and elsewhere in the Province of Alberta.
Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's EBA Golf Tournament. While it remains a possibility that golf courses may be allowed to open fully before our scheduled tournament date of July 3, 2020, we have been advised that the ban of gatherings of more than 15 people is expected to last throughout the summer, making it impossible to host the tournament this year in a format that meets our goal of allowing members of the bar and judiciary to enjoy a social outing together. We look forward to having you join us for the 2021 EBA Golf Tournament.
Regarding our remaining events for 2020, and in recognition of the ongoing effects of COVID-19, we have also made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Judges' Dinner. While we will be recognizing all of the honorees in 2020, we look very forward to also doing so with the members of the bar and judiciary at the Judges' Dinner in 2021. We look very forward to celebrating with all of you at that time.
We will continue to provide updates regarding what may transpire regarding the EBA Christmas Party.
