PAS Squared 2nd Annual Meeting
Time & Location
About the Event
Please join us for the 2nd Annual Meeting of the Pan-American Society for the Placenta Accreta Spectrum. This meeting has been converted to an online forum to accommodate social distancing and travel restrictions due to COVID-19.
Since we will be working across multiple time zones, we have planned a slightly shorter than usual schedule. We will be online from 9:00am-4:00 pm (CST), with an optional lunch break on Sat Sept 26, 2020 and from 9:00 am-Noon (CST) on Sun Sept 27, 2020.
This meeting will be a working meeting to develop and solidify the PAS2 structure, committees and planning, combined with what we hope are excellent networking opportunities.
Please RSVP, and we will send a Zoom link to all registrants, along with a copy of the by-laws, upon which we will plan to vote on Sat Sep 26, 2020. Comments or proposed edits to the by-laws are encouraged, and must be sent in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Sep 1, 2020, to be considered prior to the vote for ratification.
If you have interested colleague, or others whom you'd like to invite from within your institution or team, please feel free to refer them also to this link and we will provide them an individual link to the meeting.
