What was once considered an unprecedented time has become our new normal. As physical and online shopping carts continue to fill with face masks, hand sanitizer and cleaning products, your ACR Council Steering Committee (CSC) has been working diligently with ACR staff to plan for the ACR 2021 Annual Meeting.
The CSC recently shared its decision to conduct the ACR 2021 Annual Meeting virtually May 15-19, 2021. We’ve decided to move forward in a virtual format recognizing that many of our attendees are under travel restrictions and unable to attend an in-person meeting, and prioritizing the safety of all ACR members, staff and their families.
I’m looking forward to sharing additional details about our plans and hearing from many of you during the ACR Council Town Hall on Dec. 16 at 8pm ET. Please join me and Council Vice Speaker Amy Kotsenas, MD, FACR, to discuss lessons learned from ACR 2020, feedback and opportunities for improvement, and how we can expand ACR 2021 to make it a much richer meeting experience. We’ll also provide an opportunity for participants to share their ideas for improvement and to ask questions.
