2020 has become a challenging year as we respond and adapt to the impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The FEMSA/FAMA Annual/Fall Conference Planning Committee and both Boards of Directors have been closely monitoring the status of the pandemic in New Orleans, and state, local, federal and CDC guidelines on travel, social distancing, facial masks, sanitization, and disinfection.

With COVID-19 cases increasing in New Orleans, and across the country, we have made the exceedingly difficult decision to cancel the 2020 FEMSA/FAMA Conference and the Business Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. This decision was not made lightly as this event has never before been canceled.

In the near future, we will send information to our members to participate in virtual FEMSA and FAMA business meetings in October. We are also planning a virtual webinar as an alternative to the in-person educational program.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 conference in Tampa, Florida, September 22-24. Mark your calendars now for Tampa!

Stay Safe! Stay Healthy!
