Change from Live to Virutal Confernece:

Due to continued concerns around COVID19 and after lengthy discussions, SOCRA has made the difficult decision to move the 2020 Annual Conference to a “virtual conference”. Government restrictions on gatherings, travel restrictions (international and company mandated), budget restrictions, company policies, and general concerns due to the COVID19 pandemic have all contributed to this difficult decision. We do not feel it would be responsible to ask people to gather in person at this point.

SOCRA also recognizes the importance of our mission and the importance of continuing education for clinical research professionals, perhaps more now than ever, and is committed to providing a valuable program to our stakeholders.
