CANCELLED: Population Association of America Annual Meeting
PAA 2020 is Cancelled
Due to the COVID-19 disease outbreak, PAA will be unable to hold the 2020 Annual Meeting. The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, District of Columbia Mayor Bowser declared a state of emergency and a public health emergency, and governmental entities recommend event cancellations, social distancing, and remote working.
We hope you will be patient with us as we try to work out how to maintain the vibrancy of our PAA community before we meet in St. Louis in 2021. We are investigating options to coordinate an online demographic exchange both over the days of PAA 2020 and throughout the year to maintain some of the interaction that is so valuable to our community.
The PAA Board of Directors has authorized full refunds of registration fees to all registrants. Registration fees may be refunded, transferred to registration for PAA 2021, or converted to a tax-deductible donation. Submit your registration fee request online by April 17, 2020. For more information, please visit the FAQ page or email questions to paa2020refund [at] popassoc.org.
