After much deliberation and assessment by executive leadership and the Annual Conference committee, the trade association has decided to transition this year's in-person event to an online forum.
The Annual Conference, initially scheduled for March 29-April 1 and subsequently postponed to Sept. 13-16, will be held virtually this fall. The agenda will publish later this summer and will consist of shorter, online panels that will take place over the course of a week. Stay tuned for more information as speakers are confirmed and logistics finalized.
Registration fees for the event are $247.50 per person, a 50% discount off the in-person rate. All previously-registered attendees will be automatically enrolled in the virtual event (confirmations will be sent in the coming weeks) and provided a $247.50 credit that can be applied toward any future invoice, including registration for next year's event or to register a colleague for the online conference. To make alternative arrangements, or request a credit memo evidencing your account balance, email Tarra Ruttman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for the virtual event will include:
We are disappointed ATEC cannot facilitate an in-person event this year, but are very excited for the opportunity to provide an online forum for community engagement and the sharing of industry updates and best practices during these challenging times. And while we are not in a position to confirm dates for next year's Annual Conference given uncertainties surrounding the safety of large gatherings, please plan to join us in Fort Worth once we can ensure a safe and enjoyable event that meets the expectations of all involved.
Stay tuned for updates on everything ATEC members need to know as well as ways that you can help the council and the AMTS community.
