Frequently Asked Questions on the status of the 2020/2021 Centennial Annual Meeting

(This will be updated as news and events develop.)

We have moved our Centennial Celebrations to the New Orleans 2021 Annual Meeting, which will be a hybrid live/virtual meeting.

The 2020 Annual Meeting, originally planned for October 2020 when we had intended to celebrate our centennial, was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its continued presence in the Austin, Texas, area.

We look forward to returning to Austin for a future meeting as soon as we are able.  Our future meetings are scheduled for New Orleans in April 2021, for San Antonio in April 2022, and for Fort Worth in March/April 2023.

What will be the requirements for face masks and social distancing measures for New Orleans 2021?

We will abide by all health and safety requirements in place at the time of the Annual Meeting.  We will update this space as more specific and relevant information is made available to us.

What will happen to my paper or panel submission to Austin 2020?

We have rolled forward all 2020 proposals to the 2021 Annual Meeting, set for April 15-17 in New Orleans.  If you plan to attend, you will not need to do anything further to your submission.

If you will not be able to make that meeting, you may withdraw your proposal by logging in to the submission platform, selecting submit or edit a proposal and clicking on the “delete” option to the right of the submission title.
