At this time, the 2020 AAPT Summer Meeting is scheduled to take place as planned from July 18 through 22, 2020 at the DeVos Place Convention Center. We realize there are many questions in light of COVID-19 as it relates to future AAPT events, particularly the upcoming 2020 AAPT Summer Meeting in Grand Rapids, MI. The health of attendees, presenters, exhibitors and staff is AAPT's top priority. We will continue to monitor the situation and are following the recommendations regarding safety and precautionary measures issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and provide updates as necessary. We invite you to register to attend, and anticipate registration opening by mid-April.
