2020 Conference

The 2020 AAMA Annual Conference has been canceled.

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.

We urge conference registrants to cancel their flights and room reservations as soon as possible. We recommend contacting the hotel (Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista) directly to cancel room reservations.

Conference registration fees were fully refunded by Aug. 1, 2020. We will share more information as it becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding and patronage.

Check back with this page as more updates become available. And mark your calendars now for the 2021 AAMA Annual Conference in Houston, Texas: Sept. 24–27, 2021.
