As our Annual Meeting in Baltimore this November draws nearer, our members’ health and safety remain our central concern. AAA staff and leadership continue to carefully monitor national, state, and local public health guidelines, as well as epidemiological conditions in preparing for the meeting. We are preparing for an in-person meeting with virtual participation options. However, if a significant deterioration in public health conditions occurs, we are prepared to change our plans.

We are strongly recommending that people who plan to attend in-person be fully vaccinated prior to travel this fall. We will also require the use of masks in public indoor spaces, and ample supplies of extra masks will be on hand. If we do not see a substantial improvement in the national incidence of new COVID-19 cases, we may institute a requirement that in-person participants be fully vaccinated.

Our evaluation of the situation will continue right up to and through the Annual Meeting and we’ll be in regular communication with updates.

The preliminary program for the meeting will be available the week of September 13th. For more updates on health and safety, registration, and housing, visit our Annual Meeting website. You may also want to view our FAQ section for further information.
