The 2020 ACVR Annual Meeting Comes To You Virtually

ACVR, Friends of ACVR and Sponsors,

Due to circumstances and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, ACVR will not convene an in-person meeting in 2020.

Although we cannot meet face-to-face in Reno, we are making the best of our situation, and are planning a virtual meeting, complete with abstracts, key note presentations and continuing education material. Our virtual meeting is planned for the week of October 19, 2020. ACVR thanks the Silver Legacy Resort Casino in Reno, NV, for rescheduling our 2020 meeting to Fall of 2022. Please stay tuned for more information about abstract submission and meeting registration.
