2020 Virtual Annual Meeting and Online Repository

2020 Virtual Annual Meeting & Online Repository

September 9-11, 2020

This year’s conference theme of Making Measurement Matter has taken on a special significance amid the many societal changes accelerated by the pandemic. In collaboration with many of you, we have prepared a program that offers opportunities to learn, grow, connect, and celebrate some incredible work and achievements in the field. This virtual conference program features a wide range of content, including training sessions, expert panels on education policies, and sessions showcasing cutting edge measurement research.

The virtual Annual Meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 9 to Friday, September 11, 2020.  The meeting will consist of live Coordinated Sessions and interactive networking opportunities.  Sessions will run from roughly 11 AM – 6:30 PM EST.

We have invited our Paper, Poster, and Research Blitz Session presenters to upload their final paper to the Online Repository.  Members will be able to view the program and read papers during breaks.  Members will also be able to view our recorded Summer Series sessions through YouTube.

We look forward to seeing you in many virtual sessions!
