Dear ACCA community,
Following our discussions with the ACCA Steering Committee members, our ACCA member organisations in Kenya, and with our partner organisations involved in this year's General Assembly, it was unanimously decided that it would be best to postpone this year's GA, and associated side-events, to the week of 13 November 2017. The ACCA GA will take place from 14-16 November 2017. All those that were consulted in the process also advised that the GA and associated side-events be moved out of Kenya, for a number of reasons. As such, and due to the circumstances, the GA will again take place in South Africa this year.
We stand by our friends and colleagues in Kenya during the upcoming elections. We hope these new dates will still permit all those that had intended on attending the GA to do so, and look forward to hosting you in South Africa.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
