MEETING SAFELY – OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
APHSA continues to monitor and assess the potential impact of COVID-19 on our members’ work and our events and events-related travel. We continue to move ahead as planned with the 2021 event. With everyone’s health and well-being as our top priority, we will continue to provide updates as needed.
APHSA is adopting a Meeting and Event Code of Conduct for all APHSA in-person events as developed by The Events Industry Council, through its member organizations, to support our members' health, safety, and well-being.
