AAOA Annual Meeting 2020 Virtual
In light of the COVID19 pandemic and unprecedented impact, your Board of Directors and AAOA staff recognize the safest option is to host the meeting virtually. We look forward to your participation in this premiere member benefit (remember: the meeting is part of your overall member benefits package and does not have any additional registration fees for members).
Building on the strong, innovative program planned for Scottsdale, our Education Committee, Leadership, and staff are committed to hosting a fabulous virtual meeting that incorporates the cutting-edge science and practice management content, as well as new content in response to healthcare changes as a result of COVID. 100% virtual allows you to engage in learning and networking without taking time from your practice and allows us to take advantage of the novel approaches to adult education afforded by this platform.
Please bear with us as we work out the logistics and details. We look forward to bringing the AAOA together for a safe and productive experience in this challenging environment.
