Two concurrent sessions will be offered: one on fiber-producing species and one on future practice implications for pathologist training. RACE credits will be offered.

Networking events for students and residents, as well as a diversity eventare planned . A more detailed schedule will be forthcoming. Reduced registration fees will be offered.

The Lifelong Learning Committee, in conjunction with the Annual Meeting Committee, is offering a free webinar on COVID-19 sponsored by StageBio. This webinar will be presented on Thursday, September 17 from 12:00 p.m.-4:00p.m. EDT. Speakers include Dr. Lind aSaif, Dr. Jana RitterDr. Olga Gonzalez, and  Dr. Timothy Sheahan, and it will be moderated by Dr. Jerry Ward and Dr. Sanjeev Gumber. Mark your calendars!

We would like to thank the Contingency Meeting Planning Task Force, chaired by Heather Tillman and Alicia Olivier, Christiane Löhr, 2020 Program Chair; Tina Meichner, ASVCP Program Chair; and Mary Christopher, ISACP Program Chair, who have been working with session chairs and invited speakers to determine which content will be presented in 2020 and what will be transferred to 2021. Ingeborg Langohr and David Rotstein have been working on virtual abstract presentations and awards for this year. It takes a village.

We are looking forward to seeing you there — virtually. In the meantime, please stay safe and we wish good health to you and your families.
