ASAE is converting its planned live annual meeting in Dallas this August into a virtual event, but one in conjunction with regional in-person gatherings. A June meeting also will be converted to virtual.
“Given the current pace of COVID-19 vaccine rollout and member comfort in participating tied to whether they are vaccinated, ASAE concluded it’s not possible at this time to guarantee the success of an in-person, multiday annual meeting and trade show in mid-August,” the association for association executives said in a March 4 statement.
