AORN Presents Virtual Congress 2020
When stories of COVID-19 and its risk of spread began to hit the news media earlier this year, the nation focused its attention on the influx of cases in California. Concurrently, AORN leadership worked with Orange County and California officials as well as the Anaheim Convention Center to evaluate the potential risk of illness for the attendees at the upcoming Global Surgical Conference & Expo. Based on our clinical understanding and our proactive communications efforts, we came to the disappointing conclusion that our conference in Anaheim must be canceled.
With that decision, the AORN board of directors and leadership came together to plan and present the association’s first virtual Congress.
Forum and the two meetings of the House of Delegates
On March 28, AORN launched in virtual format the first of the three business meetings that comprise the association’s Congress with its member Forum which was followed on March 29 with the First House of Delegates and the Second House of Delegates and election results on April 1.
Key reports and presentations from the member Forum, First House of Delegates and Second House of Delegates can be downloaded from the links below for further details. The exception is the awards which will be presented in the Virtual Global Surgical Conference & Expo 2020 on May 1, 2020.
