Update: 2020 AACMFS Annual Meeting

Dear AACMFS Fellows,

As you are all aware, the coronavirus pandemic has been growing in intensity in the United States and many institutions have restricted travel for their faculty and students. Our planning for the annual meeting has gone very well and we have a full agenda planned with wonderful social events for everyone to enjoy. Obviously, we are watching the spread of coronavirus closely and are acutely aware of how it may impact our meeting in May. The executive committee has convened by conference call and a plan is in place to make a decision of whether to cancel the meeting by April 11 as this is a deadline imposed by the host venue for the association to incur the lowest possible penalty to cancel the event. We are looking for potential dates to reschedule the event in the fall and hopefully have that reserved in case cancellation is necessary. I’m hopeful that the panic will subside and we will be able to proceed as planned but we will know more in the coming weeks. I thank all of you for your continued support of this organization and our annual meeting.

My best,

David Kim, DDS, MD
