2020 Annual Meeting

52nd APRES Annual Meeting

July 14-16, 2020
Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas
Dallas, Texas

APRES Attendees,

Planning for the 52nd APRES Annual Meeting is underway.

I know many of you are looking beyond the current coronavirus travel restrictions, social distancing guidelines, etc. and wondering whether you should be preparing to attend the 52nd APRES Annual Meeting at the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas in Dallas, TX scheduled for July 14-16, 2020.

The answer is Yes. APRES will hold its 2020 meeting in person or virtually. While the details on a potential virtual meeting are being worked out, we want you to prepare and submit your abstract by the extended deadline of April 10th.

The health and safety of everyone is our top priority. The meeting in Dallas will only be held if federal, state and local governments are in agreement that it is safe to do so. The meeting in Dallas is 4-months away and, without a crystal ball, it is impossible to know right now the future impact of the coronavirus, COVID-19. As new information is received, the APRES Board of Directors and Program Committee will evaluate future steps and keep you apprised of how we will move forward.

Therefore, we ask you to Be Pro-Active and Submit an Abstract. The 52nd APRES Annual Meeting will be held July 14-16, 2020–live and in person or using virtual technology.

Barry Tillman

APRES President
