At this time of national challenge that requires thoughtful judgment, the Board of ACAM has made the difficult decision to postpone the annual conference scheduled for May 7-9 in Atlanta. The conference is now rescheduled for Thursday through Saturday, October 22-24 in Atlanta, at the Grand Hyatt. Information about the conference will be posted on the ACAM website this summer.
The decision to reschedule is in keeping with the CDC guidelines concerning public gatherings. Those of us who serve on the Board feel strongly that the health of our members, presenters, and sponsors outweigh any other consideration.
We have an outstanding program planned and look forward to gathering with you in the fall. In the meantime, please be safe and follow your healthcare professional's advice.
These are trying times for our country and our communities. I am hopeful that well before October the Covid-19 menace will abate.
