We regret to inform you that the 2020 WAAL Conference scheduled for April 16-17, has been canceled due to concerns about COVID-19 (Coronavirus).


This unanimous decision was made by the WLA Board and WAAL leadership in light of the developments over the last few days, including elevated warnings from the CDC and WHO, growing travel restrictions worldwide, and increasing numbers of requested cancellations from presenters.

We are now in the process of evaluating and determining next steps, including whether a rescheduled event may be possible yet this year.

We will reach out as soon as possible with additional information. Our priority now is communicating clearly and to all of you that the 2020 conference is canceled.
