Annual Meeting

Dear APMS Members:

The Board of Directors met March 26 to discuss the APMS / TAPMS joint annual meeting scheduled for July 19-22 in San Antonio. In light of current events, stay at home orders, and disruptions in travel plans the Board has authorized APMS Meeting Manager Bill Torres to begin discussions with the hotel in San Antonio to re-evaluate our options. We want to ensure the safety of our membership and participants while also having a successful meeting. We should have additional information in the coming weeks regarding the meeting and would ask that if you are considering submitting an abstract for the meeting to wait until closer to the April 17 deadline. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please direct them to a member of the Board of Directors.

Best regards,
APMS BOD
