After careful deliberation, AASP’s Executive Board and Conference Planning Committee have jointly decided that our 35th Annual Conference will be held virtually rather than in person in Orlando this October. With the safety of our members and attendees in mind, AASP believes that holding a large, in-person gathering intended to draw participation from around the world would be irresponsible, imprudent and impractical as we all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. We are disappointed that we will not be able to gather, but we are confident our decision is in the best interest of our membership and broader professional community.
AASP’s Conference Planning Committee is working on finalizing an exciting program that will be delivered virtually over our original October 21 – 24 dates. Keynote speakers include Brandon Marshall, former NFL All Pro and current co-host of Inside the NFL; Kara Goucher, Olympic marathoner and World Championship medalist; General Robert Brown, who served as commander of the US Army Pacific; and Jack Lesyk, former AASP President and the 2020 Coleman Griffith Lecturer.
The Virtual Conference will consist of both live and on demand sessions, as well as an e-poster gallery. Conference sessions will be available online for registrants to view at their convenience until April 30, 2021. All previously-announced accepted presenters will have an opportunity to share their work and will receive more information in the coming weeks.
