It is our hope that our 2022 SLMMS Annual Meeting and Installation Dinner can be an in-person event, especially following the cancellation of the 2021 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of an abundance of caution, the SLMMS Council has decided to postpone the event from the previously announced January date to a new date – Saturday, April 23, 2022.
“The decision was made due to the continued cancellation and/or postponement of many winter events, as well as reluctance to attend large gatherings, and concerns that we may see a spike in cases this winter, especially now with the omicron variant,” stated Dave Nowak, SLMMS Executive Vice President. “The additional three months will provide extra time for increased vaccinations, boosters, and hopefully, less community transmission of COVID-19.”
The 2022 Annual Meeting and Installation Dinner is planned for the Living World at the Saint Louis Zoo. Watch for more information about sponsorships in January. All SLMMS members will receive their invitations by mail next February or March.
