A Message From Our President
What an interesting few months it’s been since we last communicated to the members and friends of APOS. It’s clear that the months ahead will continue to challenge each and every one of us.
As part of the planning process for the APOS annual meeting, we surveyed our members and past  
conference attendees to gauge comfort levels and preferences for an in-person or virtual meeting in 2021. Thank you to those of you who participated in the survey and offered candid and sincere feedback. As always, keeping our members, conference attendees and their families and patients safe is our top priority. Your voice is integral to our decision making.

We are excited to officially announce that APOS is going virtual in 2021! Save the date for the real-time virtual conference, March 10-12, 2021. We have begun to build a timely, innovative, and informative virtual experience that will take place in real time and provide plenty of opportunities for interaction. Stay tuned for further information. And, please stay safe and be well!
