2021 Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting Announcement

 Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to let you know that the 2021 ACMS Annual Meeting has been changed to a virtual meeting. Given current CDC guidelines and restrictions in the State of Washington and the city of Seattle, it would not be feasible to have an in-person meeting. In addition, multiple institutions have extended their business travel bans. We were very hopeful that we would be able to have at least some attendees participate in person in Seattle and express our disappointment at being unable to accomplish this goal. The Board of Directors met last week and voted unanimously in favor of a virtual meeting. We are certain to provide the best virtual meeting and plan on holding all sessions as planned.

The ACMS website and registration portal are being updated to reflect the change in format. We expect all changes to be made in the next couple of weeks and will send another email when registration for the meeting is open. We anticipate offering the program in its entirety.

We are disappointed that we will not be together in Seattle this year and hope that you understand our decision. We look forward to seeing all of you next year in Philadelphia. Our mission to deliver the highest quality educational experience to our members remains unchanged. Thank you for your commitment to the College.
