 Call for Presentations

The Annual Meeting Committee is thrilled to announce a change in how content is identified for our Annual Meeting. We received an overwhelming response to the 2021 call for member submitted sessions and we would like to significantly increase the number of sessions that are submitted by membership.

This means that you now have more opportunity than ever to shape the scientific and educational content delivered at the meeting. As you prepare your submissions, please organize the content by the following domains and emphasis areas.
