The ASES 2021 Annual Meeting and

Open Symposium have been Postponed

In light of the current COVID-19 resurgence, specifically within the Tampa region, and its potential impact on the health and safety of our Annual Meeting and Open Symposium participants and their families, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the these two events until early next year.
Ensuring a safe meeting for all has always been our top priority, and we feel that this shift is ultimately the right decision to support this commitment to our members and meeting participants. We will continue to plan our 2021 Annual Meeting and 2021 Open Symposium to bring you a phenomenal educational program and create a time where we can all celebrate together safely.
Additional details will be forthcoming and communicated with all membership as well as posted on the ASES Annual Meeting Website



All members are invited to the ASES Business Meeting on Saturday, October 23 at 9:00-10:30am EST. More information will be coming in the next few weeks.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the ASES Leadership Development Program

Thank you to all those who applied for the Leadership Development Program! The submission process is now closed.  The Member Experience Task Force will be reviewing all submissions that were received and make their final decision in Mid-September.  We are looking forward to welcoming the inaugural program attendees!
