By the end of May 2020, DH2020 Local Organizers at the University of Ottawa will begin issuing refunds to all who registered for DH2020 prior to its cancellation. These refunds will be issued automatically; participants will not need to request them. At the time of registration, the cancellation policy included a nonrefundable 5% transaction fee. In order not to unfairly penalise those who registered early, ADHO will be covering this transaction fee so that all registrants will receive a 100% refund.

The minutes for the annual meeting of the ADHO Steering Committee have been published. The meeting took place on 7 and 9 July and included the transition from the old governance model to the new one. The meeting concluded with the first meeting of the new Constituent Organization Board (COB). 

At the close of the DH2019 conference in Utrecht, ADHO implemented a number of governance changes. The organization’s governing body had been a Steering Committee, which was comprised of voting representatives from each of the Constituent Organizations (COs), as well as ADHO Officers and the chairs of various committees. 

The new governance structure is bipartite with a Constituent Organization Board (COB) and an Executive Board:
