On October 20, 2023, Provincial Specialist Associations hosting online conferences via easyREG faced a major platform failure. Some managed alternative links, while others were hindered by issues like emails being marked as spam. Volunteer teachers, dedicated to their associations, are working tirelessly amid their full-time jobs to resolve the situation. As such, patience from members is requested due to the additional challenges posed by the small staffing of easyREG.
