Following the lead of AAPA (as their affiliate organization), and taking into consideration the wellbeing of our members and the communities that we are part of, the Human Biology Association is cancelling our annual meeting scheduled for Los Angeles on April 15-17, 2020. The decision by the AAPA Executive Committee was no doubt a very difficult one, and we are grateful for their thoughtful leadership in this trying situation.
We understand the cancellation will have both professional and financial ramifications for many members. We thank you for your patience as we process reimbursements for all registrations, and investigate any means to assist those members most negatively impacted by the cancellation decision. Please reach out to our treasurer (Jason DeCaro) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to donate part or all of your registration to the association.
Importantly, please also know that everyone must cancel their own hotel reservations by either contacting the JW Marriott Live LA directly at 1.213.765.8600 or by using their online reservation system.
We are all very sad this is the outcome, and will miss seeing you all in April. But we all agree this is the right decision. We look forward to seeing you all in Baltimore instead in 2021.
The Human Biology Association Executive Committee
