Special Announcement:  AAACE 2020 Annual Conference in Reno, NV, October 27-30

AAACE Leadership, the 2020 Conference Committee, and Staff continue to monitor the evolving factors related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As of June 23, the Executive Board determined it would be in the best interest of our members and attendees to cancel the in-person conference in Reno and in its place hold the conference virtually. Current developments, restrictions on gatherings exceeding more than 50 people in the state of Nevada, an international travel ban into the United States, domestic travel bans imposed by colleges and universities, and the continual spread of the Coronavirus, all contributed to our decision to move the 2020 AAACE Conference completely online, October 27 - 30. We look forward to having you join us for the online event and will be providing further details and the updated program shortly.
