Dear Valued Member/Partner:
As you likely know by now, due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and after significant discussion and consultation over the last week, AMCA leadership has cancelled the 2020 Annual Meeting, scheduled for March 16-20 in Portland - with no plans to reschedule.
While this was a difficult decision, given the many contributions made to conduct a successful and productive meeting, there truly was no practical way to convene in Portland, due to restrictions placed on nonessential travel, advisories against travel to those over age 60, and AMCA members' important role in promoting public health.
AMCA leadership recognizes the inconvenience this late cancellation places on all of us. For that, please accept our sincere apologies.
As you can imagine, AMCA will experience fairly significant financial impacts as a result of the late cancellation due to contractual obligations to the hotels and convention center.
Since announcing the cancellation of the meeting, we have had some attendees offer that AMCA retain their registration payments to help offset hotel and convention center cancellation fees. If that is option you are interested in, please reach out and let AMCA staff know in writing. If that is not an option for you, we completely understand and will process your refund within 30 days.
Please contact Evan Wise, AMCA Membership Services Director at
to let him know whether you would like AMCA to retain your registration fees or if you need a registration refund.
We are researching virtual options to provide content that would have otherwise been presented at the annual meeting. Please watch for updates.
We look forward to hosting you in Salt Lake City, March 1-5, 2021!!
