 Thank you to all who attended the January 2020 Winter Conference in San Diego – we hope you found it to be a beneficial conference and that you enjoyed your time there. Now that we have returned, it’s on to Cincinnati August 6-10 for our 150th Congress and ACA’s 150th anniversary celebration.  Details are still being finalized, but plans are to change the conference program format (starting the conference on Friday and ending it on Monday afternoon), as well as we plan to hold more special events in celebration of this Sesquicentennial Celebration. Please check our website often as pertinent details about the conference will be posted as they become known.  Please plan to join us in August in Cincinnati and be part of this historic event.  It’s one you won’t want to miss!
