From its inception, the AMS has been committed to health and safety. As we continue to plan for the 102nd Annual Meeting, our highest priority remains the health and safety of everyone attending the meeting as well as the community of Houston, Texas. As such we will be enforcing the guidelines outlined in the AMS 102nd Annual Meeting Commitment to Care Statement in the AMS meeting space at the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton of the Americas, we highly recommend that attendees also follow these guidelines while traveling to/from and throughout 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.
