Congress cancelled

Registration refunds will be processed by 7 February. When you registered for the congress, your registration payment included both the fee for the congress, workshops and social event as well as your EAWOP membership fee. Many members asked for a refund for the congress registration which allows them to retain their EAWOP membership. In the refund process, we will therefore give people the opportunity to separate the congress fee refund from the membership fee refund. The refund form that has been sent to all regsistered delegates needs to be completed by 7th January. If you want a full refund you just need to show this on the form. If you do not complete the form then we will refund your registration fee without the membership element so that you can retain your EAWOP membership until May 2023 and be part of the conference legacy and refund the rest to you. Please let there be no doubt that those who want a full refund will get it for all payments. The form also asks you to let us know whether you want to be contacted regarding the legacy activities and the next congress in Katowice. Refunds will be automatically repaid through the same means as you used to pay. If you paid by credit card it will be a credit on your card. If you paid by bank transfer the money will be returned to the same account. If you requested an invoice but have not yet paid it, the invoice will be cancelled and you will owe nothing. In this case, and if you request a full refund you can still join or renew your EAWOP membership via the EAWOP website.

Message from the EAWOP President: I’d like to encourage you to stay an EAWOP member for three key reasons:
  1. Help rebuild and reignite EAWOP. EAWOP is a society that relies almost entirely on membership fees, which are typically collected during the registration of the congress. Cancelling the congress constitutes a serious financial shock and may potentially threaten the long-term viability of a non-commercial society like ours. We know that EAWOP has a very loyal community of long-time members. Reconfirming your membership till the next congress will provide that spark for us to reignite and rebuild EAWOP after this unfortunate crisis.

  2. Part of the congress never dies. While the congress needed to be cancelled, the EAWOP Glasgow legacy will live on. We are committed to ensuring that the research conducted and submitted for the congress is reported and available to our members. We are currently in the process of creating a legacy website. We will provide all members who wish for their research to be included on that legacy website, the opportunity to upload a PDF of the written paper, the PPT of the presentation, or/and a short clip recording with the presentation. We are also working with the workshop presenters to convert as much of the programme as we can to an online format.


  3. Benefit from all EAWOP has to offer. Of course, the bi-annual EAWOP congress is our flagship event. But EAWOP has so much more to offer: Junior members can join one of our successful Early Career Summer Schools and benefit from early career research mentoring grants. Members have access and contribute to our leading journals EJWOP, OPR and In-Practice. Members take part and organize exciting Small Group Meetings all over Europe. Constituent members help shape the EAWOP strategy and share experiences across Europe. Practitioners organize and join the successful WorkLabs and practitioner initiatives. And all members and constituents can give input and vote for the new EAWOP President and new EC members at the General Assembly.


Please consider staying with EAWOP for the next phase of our journey as we rebuild towards the EAWOP congress in Katowice in 2023. I promise you won’t regret it.

EAWOP General Assembly

EAWOP invites constituents and full members to participate in the online General Assembly (GA) for 2022.

EAWOP is required to hold a General Assembly every year. This is a face-to-face meeting in congress years but as you know, to our great regret, the congress had to be cancelled. We want to inform all our members about the activities and the financial situation of EAWOP. Therefore, the GA will take place online on Wednesday January 12th, 17:00 – 19:00 CET (16:00 – 18:00 GMT).

The agenda of the online GA is available here (http://eawop.org/ga-2022) and can be viewed after log-in to the EAWOP website with your membership details.

In order to attend the online EAWOP 2022 GA, please fill in this Google form. Your registration is needed to be able to vote during the GA. The voting itself will be anonymous, but we need to ensure that only eligible members can participate in this process.

Further information about online attendance, documents for consultation, and the voting process will be sent shortly before the General Assembly to the registered members.

We hope you will participate in the online GA in January 2022 and we look forward to meeting you then.

Congress Cancellation Message from EAWOP President

Covid Information

Welcome

It is with great regret that we must announce that EAWOP 2022 Congress in Glasgow has had to be cancelled.

 

We have listened carefully to our delegates and speakers, we have looked at government advice and recognise that as a result of the Omicron variant, there are new and serious implications for travel, but far more importantly, there are potentially very serious implications for the health and wellbeing of participants if the congress goes ahead.
We know that there was huge appetite for a face-to-face event. Over 1300 people have registered and we are sorry to disappoint those who had enthusiastically invested in their submissions and were looking forward to the event. We waited as long as we could in the hope that the situation would improve and allow us to go ahead but it is clear that this is not possible. 

Please accept our heartfelt apology that under current circumstances and despite every effort we are no longer able to safely deliver what we believe would have been an exceptional event.

 

We would like to thank all the people who worked so hard to create an exciting and inspiring congress. This includes our invited speakers and workshop leaders who had put so much into making the EAWOP 2022 programme so stimulating, all those who submitted papers to the event and the many reviewers who helped with decision making. We also thank our sponsors, including the City of Glasgow and the volunteer and professional organisers as well as the staff of the British Psychological Society for the long hours spent developing the congress.

Please bear with us while we work through the practical implications that need to be addressed following this decision. The first of these is that in early January we will be reimbursing all registration payments, including for those of you who cancelled your registration in advance of this notice. If you booked a 3-day registration, you will be aware that your registration included your EAWOP membership fee until May 2023. We are looking into providing an option to request a
partial refund so that you can maintain your membership status.


If you booked your accommodation through our hotel reservation link you can cancel your booking at no cost. We will be writing to everyone who registered with more information once it is available.


Please keep safe in these difficult times and we sincerely hope that the world situation will have changed sufficiently that we will be able to meet up in Katowice in May 2023 where our next congress is scheduled to run.

EAWOP Virtual Conference 2021

Viral Strain? Working life in the COVID pandemic – 27 May 2021

In addition to EAWOP 2022 in Glasgow in January 2022, EAWOP is organising a virtual conference which will focus on the impact the pandemic has had on our lives and the profound changes it has made to the way we work.

In what ways has the virus strained working life and how has it forced workplaces to change for the better? 

The aim of this one day conference, organised in collaboration with the British Psychological Society, is to invite leading scholars and practitioners from across the world to provide their insights – derived from research and practice – on how the COVID pandemic has reshaped working lives, the impact of these changes on employees, and how organisations can respond productively to the challenges presented by the pandemic.

The event will be open to all and free for EAWOP members with discounted rates for BPS DOP members.

Find out more about this exciting programme and register now.
