Due to the ongoing Covid-19 global pandemic situation, WAVO held its second virtual AGM on 29 June 2021. The meeting was well attended by members of WAVO.

This annual meeting again had its poignant moment as members of WAVO marked the passing of Scott Robinson while they warmly welcomed Terry Dunkin as the new representative from Appraisal Institute and at the same time congratulated him on being elected as one of the Vice Presidents of WAVO.

At the meeting, WAVO members discussed their plans to host the next Conference and Congress for WAVO. Member from Romania, ANEVAR, would be looking towards hosting their hybrid Conference in September 2021 together with WAVO.

Next year in March, HypZert from Germany is looking towards hosting a physical Conference with WAVO in Berlin. FECOVAL from Mexico has proposed to members that they would want to host the next WAVO Congress in September 2022.

With the increasing rate of vaccination against COVID-19 in many countries, it is largely anticipated for global travel and reopening of borders to resume steadily in 2022.

As many countries prepare to move from pandemic to endemic, we will all await the hosting of physical conferences and congresses to resume as in pre-Covid days in due time.

Meanwhile stay safe everyone.
