We are looking forward to seeing you at the A&WMA Annual Conference & Exhibition (ACE 2022), currently scheduled to be held as an in-person event in San Francisco, CA, USA.
A&WMA remains committed to the safety and well-being of our attendees, participants, and staff.  We will continue to evaluate current conditions to ensure we adhere to all safety protocol.  We are working with the hotel and event vendors to determine accommodations at the venue.  If the need arises where you are unable to participate in person due to Covid protocol or documented travel restrictions, we will consider a variety of virtual presentation formats on a case by case basis, as long as we can maintain the integrity of the technical program.
