Registration Now Open

We have been asked by several members if it is possible to register for the 2020 Annual Meeting now in order to spend professional development funds that will be lost in the next fiscal year. In response to these requests we are opening registration for the Annual Meeting a bit ahead of schedule!

The program is beginning to shape up! Once the daily schedule is complete we will be able to offer one-day registration options, Up-to-the-minute information about the meeting can be found on our website. More information will follow as details are finalized. If additional discounts are added in the future, registrants will be credited the paid amount.

Poster Deadline Extended

Poster submissions have been extended and will be accepted until June 22. If you didn't make the original deadline, you still have the opportunity to submit a poster for the Annual Meeting. The virtual environment has given us the opportunity to utilize electronic posters which allow presenters to include significantly more content in their poster than they could in a print format. It also allows presenters to present more than one poster. Visit our poster vendor website to explore the possibilities!

Presenters will be able to set their own timeframes to present, either during the meeting or after, or both. The posters will remain available to viewers long after the meeting. And posters can be edited at any time, even during the meeting. Please visit the meeting website for more information on how to submit a poster.
