Annual Meeting

Dear AACN Members,

From the onset of the pandemic, AACN leadership has considered its implications for our annual conference, weighing all options including our contractual obligation to the conference hotel. At this point, bans on mass gatherings, travel restrictions, and other COVID-19 associated issues make it impossible to hold that event as planned. Those who have registered may elect to apply your registration fees to next year’s conference or may request a refund; refund requests should be submitted by May 30, 2020.

The AACN Program and Scientific chairs will be reaching out to those who are scheduled to present workshops or posters with options as well. We do not have plans to reschedule the conference this year, and hope you will join us in Portland, Oregon on June 9-12, 2021. Thank you all for your understanding during this challenging time.

Rick Naugle
AACN President
