Everyone and everything has been impacted to some degree by the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 PATH Intl. Conference and Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for October 8-11, 2020, in St. Louis, MO, is no exception. With such uncertainty surrounding travel, social distancing and other factors yet to be seen for the quickly approaching fall, PATH Intl. has determined to postpone the conference. PATH Intl. has been working with the hotel and arena to enjoy all that St. Louis offers in 2022.
We are disappointed in that we so look forward to being together each year and know how much work by presenters, volunteers and staff has already been invested. Yet, taking all the factors into consideration, we believe it is the right decision.
PATH Intl. will be exploring other options to offer education and networking. Please stay tuned for updates as details will follow for the newly reimagined opportunities we'll be presenting for this fall.
And save the dates for next year's conference when we can all be together again, October 14-16, 2021, in Charlotte, NC, AND St. Louis in fall of 2022.
