2020 Annual Meetings

In the interest of the health, safety, and well-being of our members, in light of the challenges brought about by the COVID19 pandemic, and in order to uphold our organizational mission, provide opportunities for, and meet our obligations to, our members, the AAR Board of Directors has cancelled the in-person Annual Meeting scheduled for Boston, MA, November 21-24, 2020, and will hold an online Annual Meeting from November 29 to December 10, 2020. This online AAR Annual Meeting is not intended to replicate our typical in-person meeting but will provide registrants with venues for scholarly engagement and networking. We are excited about the opportunities this meeting may open for members who would not have been able to attend the Boston meeting and look forward to learning from the experience. We are grateful for your patience as we worked through the competing priorities and obligations brought about by this unprecedented situation. More details will be forthcoming; others are addressed in the Frequently Asked Questions.

José Cabezón, President

Alice Hunt, Executive Director
