Dear Members of the HRD Scholarly Community:
We are writing this email with the unfortunate news that the 2015 AHRD Asia Chapter Conference in Macau has been cancelled at the request of the local host institution due to the loss of the promised government funding that was intended to help subsidize the conference. Because of new austerity measures recently imposed by the central China government, the Macau government has had to withdraw its support to activities like us. Without the support, conducting the conference would not be feasible.
We realize that some of you may have already made travel plans. We hope you can reach an acceptable accommodation with the entities that booked your arrangements. In the meantime, we are exploring what options we can create to allow the opportunity for accepted authors to present your paper. In a few days, we will be sending out a follow-up message on how we might be able to accommodate this in the best possible way.
We are underway in planning the 2016 AHRD Asia Conference and encourage you to look forward to an early announcement for a call for papers. Again, we apologize for this occurrence and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the 2016 Conference of the Americas and the 2016 Asia Conference.
If you have any further concerns or questions, please contact Mesut Akdere email@example.com, coordinator of the AHRD Asia Conference.
With Sincerest Regards
2015 AHRD Asia Chapter Conference Team
