It’s Official! The 2021 AFWA Annual Meeting will take place from September 8th – September 14th. Thank you for your patience while we worked through a range of issues to figure this out. Based on your responses to our survey, we have decided to hold a two-part, hybrid meeting this year as per below. Virtual Committee Meetings: Wednesday, September 8 through Friday, September 10.
In-Person Meetings, Providence, RI: Sunday, September 12 through Tuesday, September 14. During this time, there will be the director-only retreat, meetings of the Executive Committee, special events with sponsors, and the Business Meeting. Most of these meetings will also be available virtually including the plenary session, the awards ceremony, and some professional development workshops.
We feel that this schedule offers the best combination of allowing for greater attendance and participation virtually, as well as the opportunity to interact personally at some of our essential Director level meetings.
