AAPD 2021 Update

January 2021 Volume LVI Number 1

We are very grateful for the patience of the AAPD membership while we navigate the challenging and uncertain future for AAPD 2021. The AAPD Meetings Department, along with Boston city officials are doing their very best to determine if meeting face-to-face will be possible in May.
As we continue to work through these difficult times, we still want you to be excited about what we have in store! Even if we are safely able to host you in Boston in-person, there will be a virtual platform for remote attendees to connect, network, and earn CE no matter where you are in the world. The AAPD Meetings Department has been hard at work since NashVirtual last year, researching and vetting various platforms to be sure that we provide our members with the most innovative and immersive virtual meeting around.
No matter where you are in the world, whether you’re in-person in Boston, or in the comfort of your home, you will be able to connect with one another in the same digital space. We are so excited to bring you The Hub! The Hub will serve as the virtual platform that will host AAPD 2021. Here you will find our Keynote & Opening Ceremony, Scientific Program, Exhibit Hall, networking and more! A little fun fact: Boston was dubbed "The Hub" by author Oliver Wendell Holmes in 1858. Holmes felt that Boston was truly the center of many things happening in the world at that time, so it stuck and the nickname is now used throughout the city.
Despite how times have changed over the past year, one thing remains true: the AAPD continues to be a resource for their members, personally and professionally. This is the time to rely on one another and recognize what an outstanding membership we have. AAPD leadership and staff are proud to represent our members and the great work they have done and continue to do during this difficult time.
We hope that you will join us for an unforgettable weekend, no matter where you are joining us from! This weekend will be packed with world-renowned speakers, an interactive Exhibit Hall and networking opportunities, plus a few fun surprises along the way. Please take some time to read the following pages to see what education we have in store for you.
See you in The Hub!
