The SOA has made the decision to make the 2020 SOA Annual Meeting & Exhibit, originally scheduled for October 25-28 in Seattle, fully virtual. There will not be an in-person event this year. Thanks to our volunteers and staff who helped us make this decision after extensive research, careful deliberation, and feedback from members and attendees at our virtual events this Spring. A special thanks to the city of Seattle and the Convention and Visitors Bureau for their continued partnership. We look forward to bringing our meetings to Seattle in the future.
The health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, staff and exhibitors are our top priorities. The pandemic has made a significant impact on our profession and communities; however, we are excited to create an engaging and thought-provoking virtual program to bring us all together for the same professional development and networking opportunities you have traditionally enjoyed at the largest SOA gathering of the year. We will feature many of the unique aspects you have come to expect, including addresses by SOA Leadership, Outstanding Volunteer recognition, a virtual exhibit hall, and as always, an opportunity to give back.
The SOA Virtual Annual Meeting & Exhibit will take place in October. As we transition our planning, we will share more information here on SOA.org. If you have questions related to the SOA Virtual Annual Meeting & Exhibit, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
