AOCPMR 2020 Mid-Year Meeting

***Coronavirus Update, 2020 MYM Cancelled****

The AOCPMR has been monitoring the spread of Coronavirus within the US, and we take the health and safety of our members and attendees very seriously. Unfortunately, due to travel restriction on key Mid-Year Meeting speakers as well as these greater safety concerns, we are postponing the 2020 Mid-Year Meeting at this time. The Knoxville, TN meeting from April 30th - May 3rd of 2020 will be postponed until the 2021 meeting cycle. 

Meeting registration will be immediately refunded upon request, or may be applied to the 2021 Mid-Year Meeting registration for those annual attendees who may wish to retain any discount previously obtained. 

We recognize that you may have other travel related concerns:
  •  Hotel reservations will be refunded without penalty by our contracted venue, the Crowne Plaza Knoxville. This will occur within the next few days, and should not require any action on your part.
  • Most major airline carriers are offering flight vouchers or waiving flight change fees for travel plans affected by coronavirus. Currently, Delta, United, and American - among others - are all offering waivers of this nature.
Should you have any questions or concerns related to these issues, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Allison Warren, by email at [email protected] The AOCPMR fully intends to bring your our excellent CME offerings at OMED 2020 in Austin, TX, and encourages you to look for more information to come on our 2021 January Musculoskeletal course. 
Wishing you a safe and prosperous 2020,
Knoxville, Tennessee
