Conference Update

After careful consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the best interest of you and the communities we serve, ACMA and APLCM have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Leadership & Physician Advisor Conference that was slated to take place this November and reschedule it for 2021.

We are disappointed that we will be unable to host the conference in 2020 but understand your expertise and experience are needed elsewhere at this time. We have rescheduled the event for October 28-30, 2021 in the same location, at the award-winning JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix. We urge you to mark your calendars for this date in 2021 and plan now to join us for education, knowledge-sharing and networking. We will certainly have a lot to talk about.

We appreciate your understanding, and ACMA is thinking of you, as we navigate these unprecedented times. For updates and resources on COVID-19, please click here.
