The New Directions Conference for June 28-July 1, 2021 in Charleston, SC (and online) will be a “hybrid” meeting (options for attendance in person and online).

Registrations submitted after June 7th will NOT be included in our meeting participants list.

We understand the constantly changing environment in this pandemic so if you register today for online participation and decide to attend in person at a later date, we can adjust your registration and allow you to pay the difference. Please finalize this decision by June 20th so you can have a name tag.

Safety Precautions:

General session will be in “schoolroom” format where each person has their own 6-8 foot table with rows staggered to ensure social distancing (please respect the chair placement). We ask that you select a table each day and stay with it (as we do not have staff to monitor switching). Tables will be wiped down each day in case you want to pick a new one on the next day. Due to difficulties in maintaining pandemic related distancing in a traditional poster session, we will convert to data blitz presentations selected from our abstract submissions.

Stay Safe and Stay Healthy!
