After careful and thoughtful consideration, and given the rapid developments and uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic, the AATS has decided to cancel its in-person 100th Annual Meeting and Aortic Symposium. I would like to thank the 2020 Program Committees for their tireless efforts in developing an innovative scientific program. More details on our virtual meeting plans for delivering elements of the program will be forthcoming. Although this was an extraordinarily difficult decision to make, the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees, members, exhibitors, staff, and vendors are of paramount importance.
If you registered for the 100th Annual Meeting or Aortic Symposium, you should have received an email outlining options for your registration.
We thank you again for understanding the extreme complexity of this decision and for your commitment to the success of the AATS.
As the 100th President of the Association, I am honored to play a part in marking this important moment in our history, and I hope that you and our fellow surgeons will join us when our next Annual Meeting takes place. We will continue to learn together and engage in important dialogue with our current and future innovators.
Should you have any questions, please contact the Association’s administrative office at (978) 252-2200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
