Event Proposals

COVID-19 Impact on #AWP21 Kansas City, MO, Planning

Many members and attendees have been wondering what the next conference will look like. We are considering two options: a hybrid meeting, comprising in-person and virtual programming, or the possibility the conference may be completely virtual. We continue to research technology options and network with other organizations that host large-scale events, and we are reviewing existing contracts to make this important decision.

While this decision is pending, we are unable to open the event proposal system for #AWP21. Watch for updates in our weekly enewsletter for more information.
