Annual Presidents’ Meeting, Auckland, June 21-23, 2020

Decision to Cancel

Launch of APM PLUS

(April 2, 2020)


The APRU Steering Committee has decided with considerable regret to cancel the APM scheduled for June 21-23 hosted by the University of Auckland.


The international situation due to the Covid-19 health emergency means it is very uncertain whether members will be able to attend or that New Zealand will open its border in time.


A one-hour virtual APM will be held in fulfillment of the statutory requirements. Members will be given at least 21 days’ notice.


In addition, we will launch APM Plus: Addressing the Crisis an initiative which will feature high-level webinars to enable the sharing of experience amongst members and engage them in collaborative research around University Crisis Management.   


Details will be announced in due course.


We wish to thank the Vice-Chancellor Dawn Freshwater of the University of Auckland and her staff for their efforts to date in preparing for this year’s APM.


We would also like to thank you for your understanding and continuing commitment to APRU.


Please contact Ms. Elaine Hung at if you have any questions.
