Novel Coronavirus Update | October 14, 2020
The SRS Board of Directors has spent many months monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it relates to our Society initiatives, in particular, the Annual Meeting, IMAST, and other courses. As you know, in 2020, we were unable to meet in person for either of our flagship meetings, but held very successful virtual meetings. While we do not know how things will unfold over the next several months, we have made the proactive decision to move IMAST 2021 to the virtual space. The virtual meeting will be held on the originally planned dates of April 21-24, 2021; I encourage everyone to block off time to participate in the live sessions (Add To Calendar). The program will be released in December when registration opens.
While we are sad that we will not be in Dublin this April, the Convention Centre Dublin has been wonderful to work with and we have transferred our contract to IMAST 2023, which will take place March 22-25, 2023.
We hope to see you all there.
