Annual Meetings

ACLS to faciliate Virtual Meeting of the Council

With the health and well being of our members as our first priority, along with the abundant travel and meeting restrictions in place, ACLS regretfully announces that the in-person annual meeting to be held April 30-May 2 in Baltimore has been cancelled.

The executive office is in the process of planning a virtual meeting to conduct the Meeting of the Council on Friday, May 1. The virtual conference will include Joy Connolly’s report to the Council and the constitutionally mandated components of the Meeting of the Council. We hope all delegates and executive directors of our member societies will participate.

ACLS will refund all registration fees in full. Meeting attendees who have already paid a registration fee should expect to receive a refund to your credit card in March 2020. You do not need to contact us to initiate the reimbursement process.
