Mark your calendar for AATA’s 52nd Annual Conference to be held at the newly renovated Town & Country Resort and Convention Center in sunny San Diego, CA! The core conference program will be Thursday, Oct. 28th to Saturday, Oct. 30th. As we continue to monitor the global Covid-19 pandemic, AATA will once again develop a contingency plan for an “all virtual event” if the situation requires it. If we go forward with the conference in San Diego, sessions will be recorded onsite and we will also hold a post virtual conference so that regardless of your attendance interest both options will be available.
