Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Upcoming ABA meetings

The ABA takes the health and safety of our members and staff seriously. While the decision whether to attend a meeting is a personal decision based upon current health and consultation with medical professionals when appropriate, the ABA is monitoring a variety of sources, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, U.S. state and local health authorities, and, when appropriate, public health authorities in other nations, for the latest updates. As more is learned regarding the current conditions in a meeting location, the ABA will share information, make decisions, and update this statement regarding whether a meeting will occur. Unless listed below, all meetings will be held as scheduled.
