Annual Meeting FAQs

FAQs for the Annual Meeting

Updated on 3/25/2020

Corona Virus (COVID-19) Update

The American Association of Clinical Anatomists Board and staff have been monitoring the situation surrounding the ongoing Corona Virus/COVID-19. The AACA team is continually monitoring updates and suggestions made by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the WHO (World Health Organization) regarding possible outcomes, travel restrictions, and health and safety concerns. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through the issue. 

Will the AACA 2020 Annual Meeting still take place?

We are very disappointed to inform you that as the COVID-19 situation becomes more complicated and serious by the day, the leadership of AACA has reluctantly decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting in New York, NY (June 15 – 19). We have been following announcements from agencies in the US and worldwide, as well as monitoring statements from top officials.

We appreciate your support of AACA and we will miss getting together in June. However, we do hope you mark your calendars for the 2021 Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, June 28 – July 2.

Additional details regarding any abstracts that were submitted for presentation/publication will be sent in the coming weeks. AACA fully intends on publishing those that are eligible for inclusion in the Clinical Anatomy Journal. Also, AACA leadership and staff are currently exploring potential options for a somewhat truncated virtual meeting. Keep an eye out on your inbox and the AACA website for further details.

If I need to cancel my registration, what is the refund policy?

Our refund policy states that a withdrawing registrant will receive a full refund minus a handling fee equal to 15% of the registration fee until May 18. From May 18th up to 7 days before the conference begins (June 8), 75% of the registration fee will be refundable. No refunds will be made after June 8.  Refund of fees requires an emailed request to [email protected]. Refund requests received prior to the conference may not be processed until after the conference end. This policy may change for the 2020 meeting, due to the Corona Virus. If you have registered, keep an eye on your email for further information.
