IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT March 15, 2020: After long and difficult deliberations, the APBA Board of Directors regretfully announces that our 2020 convention -- scheduled for March 26 - 28 in Denver -- is cancelled due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We truly empathize with the anxiety and frustration the wait has created.  Our decision was based on updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and local governments. The health and safety of our registrants, their clients, our staff, and our exhibitors and supporters are of the utmost importance.


To those who have expressed understanding and support both privately and publicly during this extraordinarily challenging time, the APBA Board and staff could not be more grateful. To convention registrants, exhibitors, Sponsors, and other advertisers, we respectfully ask for your patience as we work out how to deal with the cancellation and what to do going forward. Please be assured that we will consider the impact on all concerned as well as all viable options. Those decisions will take some time, as there are many moving parts and unknowns, including uncertainties about the course the novel coronavirus outbreak will take in the coming weeks and months. We will provide updates as soon as we can.


In the meantime, if you reserved a guest room at the Sheraton Denver Downtown, please look for a March 14 email from Marriott International (the Sheraton’s parent company) and read the instructions about changing or cancelling existing registrations. If you have an airline reservation, please confer with the airline on its change or cancellation policies.


Working together, we’re confident that the ABA practitioner community and those who support it will emerge from the current unprecedented emergency stronger and better than ever.      


We continue to urge everyone to get the scientific facts about COVID-19, refrain from spreading rumors, and follow recommended practices for protecting themselves and others against respiratory viruses. Here are some helpful online resources:
