Annual Meeting


Due to concerns around Covid19, the Northeast Section leadership has decided to cancel the meeting. We know this will come as a disappointment for all those who look forward to the opportunities provided by this meeting, but it was determined that the safety of our speakers and attendees was more important. We will send information about any possible rescheduling of the meeting as those decisions are made.

Shoshana Kronfeld, who has been handling the registration, will be processing refunds for all those who have paid the fee for registration. Please allow up to a week to see your refund come into your account as each registration cancellation and refund must be handled individually.  Section memberships are not refundable, so only your registration fee will be refunded. Any questions regarding this can be directed to Shoshana at shoshana@aspb.orgPlease make sure to contact your hotels and any airlines or other travel reservations you have to cancel.
