2021 Annual Meeting

53rd APRES Annual Meeting

July 13-15, 2021
Omni Las Colinas Hotel
Dallas, Texas

2021 APRES Attendees,
Planning for a live, in-person 53rd APRES Annual Meeting is underway. The health and safety of everyone is our top priority and the meeting in Dallas will only be held if federal, state and local governments are in agreement that it is safe to do so. As new information is received, the APRES Board of Directors and Program Committee will evaluate future steps and keep you apprised on whether the 2021 meeting will pivot to an on-line meeting, utilizing the hugely successful 2020 Annual Meeting format (with added features).

We ask you to Be Pro-Active: Submit an Abstract and Register for the meeting. The 53rd APRES Annual Meeting will be held July 13-15, 2020–live and in person or using virtual technology.

Gary Schwarzlose
APRES President
