Dear friends and colleagues –
I am very sorry to report that, after consultation with ASM Board of Directors, and with their strong support, we have decided to cancel the ASM annual meeting for 2020. The linked letter outlines this further.
The Society addresses a number of issues at our annual meeting. In the coming days, perhaps weeks, I will be working with the Board to clarify which of these issues can be deferred, and how we will manage those which require our attention now.
We all know that we’re facing an unprecedented situation with COVID-19. I hope you all stay healthy, and I look forward to seeing you in Anchorage in 2021, if not before.
Douglas A. Kelt, President
American Society of Mammalogists
