    If memory serves me (and sometimes it does not) I believe IACFSME has been very quiet for the past couple of years to members and non-members alike. I don't think there have been any newsletters/President's Letters during that time.

    Maybe I’m being excessively cynical today but has anyone in the whole field achieved anything yet that’s worthy of an awards ceremony at a gala dinner?

    Does anyone know where to find the 2014 IACFSME Primer?

    Most MECFS websites seem to expect this link will find it... https://www.iacfsme.org/portals/0/pdf/Primer_Post_2014_conference.pdf but that webpage can't be found.

    This page https://www.iacfsme.org/me-cfs-primer-for-clinical-practitioners--2014-revision- on the iacfsme website looks like it should hold the 2014 edition. But unfortunately the link takes you to the 2012 edition https://www.iacfsme.org/assets/docs/PrimerFinal.pdf
    I couldn't find the 2014 one anywhere on their site.

    Dear Members, Colleagues, and Supporters,

    Due to new restrictions on group gatherings (no more than 10 people) that have been mandated by the governor of New York State, we are canceling the June, 2020 IACFS/ME conference at Stony Brook University. This was a difficult decision given the high level of interest in this conference. We thank everyone for their engagement and abstract/ workshop submissions.

    We are now actively working on a re-scheduled conference and will get back you when we have more definitive information.

    Best regards,

    Fred Friedberg, PhD
