After 2 years, AZA is excited to finally be returning to in-person meetings! The 2022 Annual Meeting will take place August 27-September 1 in Baltimore, MD, hosted by National Aquarium and Maryland Zoo.
The safety of our attendees and staff are of top priority. Therefore, we will follow a strict policy requiring proof of full and up to date COVID-19 vaccination (and booster, if eligible) in order to attend all meetings, conferences, and professional development courses in 2022. We will follow all state and local public health requirements applicable at the time of the meeting regarding masks for indoor gatherings.
Registration and housing are now open! Early bird discount ends Friday, July 29.
