45th Annual RSA Scientific Meeting

June 25-29, 2022
Orlando, Florida*

*RSA’s meeting venues are contracted years in advance for logistical reasons and to keep costs down for both attendees and the Society. These contracts standardly include hefty financial penalties for cancellation that prevent RSA from changing venues. As a policy, RSA neither condones nor endorses policies or politics of the states in which we hold our annual scientific meeting.

COVID protocol: Attendees/Guests of the RSA-2022 meeting must be fully vaccinated, no exemptions/exceptions, and will be required to upload their vaccination card(s) when they register. Please plan accordingly. 

Additionally, for the health and well-being of fellow attendees, face masks are strongly recommended in all RSA-2022 Meeting space (i.e., meeting rooms, poster room, registration area, events space). To ensure the safety of our attendees, we continue to monitor COVID-related guidelines and will adjust requirements / recommendations accordingly.
