2020 Boot Camps Canceled
During the most recent ACAPS/ASPS Boot Camp Joint Committee conference call, the risks, benefits, and alternative options regarding the 2020 Boot Camp Program were thoroughly discussed and debated. Ultimately, it was the decision of the committee to fall on the side of safety for its participants and instructors amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and to cancel the Boot Camp Program for July/August 2020. Currently, the committee is continuing to work on options for educational content for our trainees and preparations for the 2021 Boot Camps. Please visit the ASPS website for additional information.
ACAPS Spring Retreat Cancellation
Providing a safe and healthy environment for our members, guests, staff, and our industry partners at our meetings is always the top priority of the ACAPS. The leadership of the ACAPS has been closely monitoring the events surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and due to ongoing concerns, as well as the latest guidance from the CDC and our concern for our patients, colleagues and our hospital communities, the ACAPS Spring Retreat and Annual Business Meeting scheduled for May 2, 2020 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, IL has been cancelled. Communications regarding specific plans for alternative education options and next steps will be forthcoming.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This was an extremely difficult decision for the ACAPS Board but one which we firmly believe is in the best interests of our members, attendees and patients. Our leadership put together an exciting Spring Retreat and our Board is meeting virtually this week to review future actions. In the meantime, we wish for health and recovery to all those affected.
