COVID-19 UPDATE

ASCM continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. Our top priority is the health and safety of all participants and we will follow any protocols that are provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on meeting attendance, among other issues, are affecting our members.

We will continue to follow CDC guidelines onsite and have a plan in place to repeatedly sanitize high-traffic areas throughout the conference.

As of today, ASCM CONNECT will be held as scheduled on September 13 – 15, 2020 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
