As we continue to plan for the 102nd Annual Meeting, our highest priority remains the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and the community in which we will meet. We are closely monitoring news and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the World Health Organization, and local health agencies regarding travel and events.
We are also committed to ensuring that the 102nd Annual Meeting allows you to share your science and connect with one another. As we consider the potential impact of COVID-19 on our in-person attendance in Houston, we are reviewing options for virtual components of the meeting for those who may not be able to join us in Houston. We encourage you to visit the 102nd AMS Annual Meeting FAQ and this website often to stay up to date on the latest news, and to review the AMS Commitment to Care statement.
As information evolves, so too does the AMS Commitment to Care. AMS will require vaccination for in-person attendees at the AMS Annual Meeting in Houston. Please give us time to update our policy over the coming weeks. Requiring vaccinations requires careful and well thought out implementation. Your AMS staff, AMS 2021 President, and 2022 Annual Meeting Committee are all working tirelessly to ensure your health and safety. You, our AMS membership, are important to us, and we are listening to you. We ask for your patience as we continue to work on our implementation strategy. Once it's final, the AMS Commitment to Care document will be updated. Stay tuned!
