As we move toward fall and as the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus continues to surge, the ACC executive committee met to discuss our upcoming symposium, scheduled to be held at Winterthur in late October. Based on our extensive discussion, we have decided to cancel the symposium for 2021. It's unfortunate that the pandemic has not really improved by now, much as we would have hoped and wished. However, in keeping the health and safety of our members in mind, we feel that this is the best course of action. 

As an alternative, we hope to schedule a one-afternoon virtual event to be presented along with our annual general meeting in late October. Check back for more information!

We look forward to gathering virtually again this year and eagerly anticipate a wonderful in-person Symposium in 2022!
