We were disappointed that the Asia Pacific Conference in Hyderabad, India had to be cancelled, but the IASSIDD Council was still able to meet virtually this year. There were several important discussions about how to reach our international members in ways that are meaningful to them outside of conference gatherings. We have had several successful webinars over the past 5 months and plan to continue to develop this avenue of outreach. In addition, we are continuing to plan our European Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands in July, 2021 as a hybrid conference with some people attending in person and other participating virtually. Additional ideas for expanding and engaging our membership are welcome.
