Thank you for being on-demand faculty for the 2021 National Conference & Exhibition!
This page will serve as a resource for relevant faculty information. All required tasks and faculty deliverables must be completed within the Session Portal. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any login issues/questions and be on the lookout for reminders as tasks become due.
The recent surge in COVID-19 infections across the U.S. from the delta variant and the transmission of COVID-19 to children make it challenging for large numbers of attendees to convene safely in person and continue to protect themselves, their patients, their families, and their communities. Therefore, the 2021 American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference & Exhibition will be entirely virtual. See here for the full announcement.
Travel arrangements: if you made a hotel reservation through the official AAP hotel block, your reservation will automatically be cancelled. If you booked a flight through the AAP travel office, your flight will be automatically cancelled. Please do not contact the housing bureau, the AAP travel office or the hotel directly to cancel. If you made travel arrangements on your own, you are responsible for cancelling.
We are so grateful for all your participation in the 2021 AAP National Conference to date. We look forward to working with you to ensure that our members receive the outstanding education they expect and need from the National Conference.
Again, thank you for all you do for the AAP National Conference. We look forward to an event to remember. Please reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
