After careful discernment, the MWACD Organizing Committee has decided to continue virtual activities through 2021 with the hope we can safely come together again in 2022. We encourage you to join your MWACD and ABRF colleagues throughout 2021 for the ABRF Annual Meeting, virtual town halls, panels, presentations, workshops, and meetings organized by ABRF chapters and committees.
In 2021, MWACD will be hosting virtual events every other month starting in February.
