Important 2020 National Assembly Update


We hope this note finds you and your loved ones safe and well. We are reaching out today with an announcement about the 2020 National Assembly. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) has decided that the in-person 2020 National Assembly that was scheduled to take place September 9-12 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas has will instead be delivered virtually on the same dates.

This was not an easy decision, but ultimately the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and staff were our top priority.

AOPA is very excited about the opportunities that a Virtual National Assembly offers, rest assured that it will be full of the same great content and networking opportunities that were planned had we been face-to-face. AOPA intends to channel the energy expended thus far by the Planning Committee into a remote learning and engaging event with continuing education credits for the highest level of O&P clinical, business, and technical education. AOPA stands committed to serving its members and the extended O&P community by providing access to quality education while saving costs – dollars on travel, lodging, and entertainment.  

In the coming weeks, we will be reaching out with specific communication to exhibitors, speakers, and attendees to share relevant information.

Thank you for your support during these unprecedented times. As we prepare for the first-ever Virtual National Assembly, we hope you and your loved ones remain safe and well. We look forward to seeing you online in September.
