Due to rapidly escalating health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), our chapter has come to the difficult decision to move to virtual for the 2020 meeting. In the spirit of our chapter values to “adapt and overcome,” we have decided to move to a virtual event.

How do I find and access which sessions will be virtual?

All sessions are virtual and we will add a link for the audience to join in the online session gallery. Only registered attendees who are logged into the Virtual Meeting Hub will be able to access these links.

Will attendees be able to ask questions or participate in the session, or is the session just going to consist of streamed presentations?

We intend to utilize live chat for attendee interaction during virtual live sessions. We would like for sessions to be interactive when possible and desired.

For other questions about the virtual meeting, contact Debbie Shealy at 803-798-6207 or
