AOPO Annual Meeting Canceled

The AOPO Executive Committee and staff have been meeting regularly to monitor the COVID-19 developments and guidance from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control in determining how best to proceed with the AOPO Annual Meeting scheduled for June 22 – 25 in San Antonio. Protecting the health, safety and well-being of our attendees has been our number one concern during our deliberations. Given the extraordinary circumstance created by COVID-19, the Executive Committee determined that the prudent course of action was to cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting.

We recognize canceling the meeting impacts many of you and your education needs. Look for more information in the very near future on AOPO’s plans to take the Annual Meeting virtual. Our goal is to help attendees meet their educational needs and provide you with valuable takeaways and lessons learned during this unprecedented time in history.

For those that have already registered, AOPO staff will be reaching out in the near future regarding refunds or other options for your registration fees. More information for exhibitors and sponsors will be forthcoming from AOPO Meetings Manager, Katie Hathaway.

If you have further questions, please contact AOPO at Otherwise, more information will be posted on the AOPO Annual Meeting website and on social media in the days and weeks ahead.

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and unwavering commitment to the donation and transplant community.
