Dear Navigators, Social Workers, Administrators, and Clinical Staff,
Did you attend our virtual Midyear Conference in May? It was an incredible event! At first, the thought of switching our usual in-person conference to a virtual one was a bit disappointing to me. But there were several elements of that experience that made the virtual conference one of my all-time favorites.
The interface was incredibly engaging, giving each attendee a front-row seat at every session. Although virtual, there was a strong feeling of connectedness as you looked right into the eyes of the presenters while watching their presentation. You could chat publicly or privately with other attendees. Yes, it felt a bit different from our usual conference, but overall, the innovative experience was educationally rewarding, and fun to boot!
In that spirit, we are truly excited to create another virtual experience for our navigation community on November 4-8 as we gather for the 2020 AONN+ Virtual Annual Conference. The 4-day event will give attendees plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues, meet members of the AONN+ Leadership Council, share best practices, and learn about the latest innovations from exhibitors. As always, we will feature informative sessions presented by industry thought leaders, poster presentations of original navigation research, and, of course, the AONN+ Awards and the Annual Poster Presenter Awards.
Register today for the AONN+ Virtual Annual Conference experience at www.AONNonline.org. I can’t wait to “see” you there!
