OAPPA2020 conference has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.   The conference team has decided, due to safety concerns, to delay the conference to May 2021.  Just like the 2020 Olympic Games recently delayed to 2021, the OAPPA2020 conference will occur in the same locations, with the same sponsors, and program.

Key partners and sponsors have been notified and have been supportive of the delay decision for OAPPA2020. All are looking forward to May 2021.
