AAG 2022 Goes All Virtual
AAG has been closely monitoring the latest information surrounding COVID-19, and considering its effect in relation to our annual meeting scheduled for February 25 – March 1, 2022. After conferring with AAG Council, leadership and staff, we have made the decision to convert AAG2022 to an entirely virtual event. We based our decision on the best information we have now, given the repeated variant outbreaks, transmission rates, and on-going safety and service disruptions that present insurmountable challenges to running a safe, successful in-person meeting. In addition, our registration patterns and the recent membership survey confirm that the majority of our members are not comfortable returning to large, in-person meetings at this time.
Fortunately, a streamlined process is in place to help session and activity organizers bring their programming to the virtual environment. AAG staff will convert any in-person or hybrid sessions or abstracts to virtual sessions. If you are already presenting virtually or organizing a virtual session, nothing will change for your presentation.
We are also prepared to seamlessly provide a refund for the difference in in-person and virtual registration rates to all in-person participants. No action is needed on your part.
While we were looking forward to gathering in person, we are confident that the virtual experience will deliver robust content and networking opportunities. We want to thank you for being part of the AAG community. Your presence and support mean the world to us, and we look forward to engaging with you at AAG2022.
