Annual Education Meeting Postponed – March 16, 2021

After much deliberation, the AVANA Board is disappointed to announce the postponement of the 2021 Annual Meeting, scheduled for May 13-16 in Tampa. This may seem like an extreme measure given the recent encouraging trend of the pandemic however, we are hearing from many members that, even if the VA travel ban is lifted, many facilities will not be sending any CRNAs to Tampa for the Educational Meeting. We felt that it was best to postpone the meeting until we could deliver a great meeting with absolute certainty. Therefore, the 2022 Annual Education Meeting will be held in May 2022 at the Sirata Beach Resort in Tampa. We are reaching out to our speakers to re-confirm the agenda for the new dates. An update will be posted to the AVANA website later this summer. Look for registration to open this fall.

This year, we will host a virtual membership meeting to conduct annual business on Saturday, May 15. Please RSVP online here - we will send out the Zoom info the week of the meeting.

Throughout the next week, the AVANA office will be contacting registrants about refunding their registration fees. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the AVANA office at [email protected].
