We would again like to thank the Fellow and Associate members who participated in our recent Annual Conference survey. Due to the ongoing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the AAPA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 46th Annual Conference. We have been following the various ways this pandemic has impacted our members, including limitations on employer sponsored travel and funding for educational conferences. These realities, in addition to the wariness of travel and the concern for health, safety, and well-being have led us to this decision.
As the AAPA is committed to providing high quality educational opportunities to earn CE, we are finalizing alternative ways for you to earn your continuing education credits this fall. We will be announcing these new offerings in the next two weeks.
We know many will be disappointed to be unable to attend an in-person event this year. We are too, but we look forward to seeing you at one of our three events in 2021!
Thank you again for being part of the AAPA community. We hope, in times such as this, you and your loved ones are safe and well.
