2021 AAMA Annual Conference

Houston, Texas

Sept. 24–27, 2021

The Westin Galleria Houston

The AAMA’s priority is the health and well-being of all conference attendees. The conference will be held in person unless the AAMA determines that it is not in the best interest of the AAMA and its attendees to do so. The AAMA will continually assess the outlook of holding the event in person.

If conference must be canceled, full refunds will be offered for conference registration fees. Flight and hotel reservations are made independent of the AAMA; please review the airline’s and hotel’s cancellation policies before booking.

Check back with this page as more conference materials are published in the spring.


2020 Conference

After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the AAMA Board of Trustees decided that the health and well-being of AAMA members and conference attendees necessitate the canceling of the 2020 AAMA Annual Conference in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Sept. 11–14, 2020.

Excel Awards  

The AAMA Awards Committee wanted to continue to celebrate hardworking medical assisting professionals with the 2020 Excel Awards. In lieu of the Awards Ceremony typically held at the AAMA Annual Conference, the AAMA Awards Committee created a Facebook Live event, hosted by AAMA President Debby Houston, CMA (AAMA), CPC, to announce some of the 2020 winners.

Miss the live event? You can still watch the Abridged 2020 Excel Awards Ceremony via the “Videos” section of the AAMA Facebook page.
