thumb Fredericksburg downtownAfter completing a survey of SAPFM members, coordinating with the SAPFM Major Events Committee and the Board of Directors, the reluctant decision was made to cancel the 2021 Mid-year Conference at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) in Fredericksburg, VA.

We have coordinated with the University and our presenters/speakers and we are planning on having the conference at UMW on 24-27 June 2022. Its been a crazy year for everyone and many members expressed concern that there were just too many Covid related uncertainties to have a face-to-face conference in June 2021. Keep your fingers crossed that we will have a successful conference in June 2022.
