In-Person Meeting Cancellation

Dear Committee on Bridges & Structures Attendees,

After careful consideration, the difficult decision has been made to cancel AASHTO’s 2020 Committee on Bridges & Structures Meeting scheduled to begin on May 31 through June 4, in Branson, Missouri. The health and safety of our members, attendees, volunteers, staff and our host community is of utmost importance to AASHTO.  Given the current environment and projected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel this is the right thing to do.

It is possible that the work of some committees may progress virtually, and that information will be shared with impacted members as plans are finalized.

We regret having to make this decision, as the Committee on Bridges & Structures Meeting has a long tradition of great opportunities for collaboration, information sharing, and relationship building within the State DOT community.  We at AASHTO look forward with great anticipation to the time we can all be together again.

Please mark your calendars for 2021 AASHTO Committee on Bridges & Structures Meeting, July 11-15, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana at The Westin Indianapolis Hotel. I look forward to seeing you there, if not before. If you have any questions, please contact AASHTO’s Director, Meeting & Member Services, Monica Russell.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances
 

Sincerely,
Jim Tymon
AASHTO Executive Director

What is the status of my refund?

Due to the AASHTO office closure along with the stay-at-home orders, we must adjust our check refund date from what was previously communicated. We now expect to begin processing check refunds in May or when we return back to the office. We will continue to keep you updated on this date. 


Will paid attendee and sponsors registrations be refunded?

If you paid by credit card you will receive an email from both CVENT and AASHTO once your refund has been processed. If you paid by check, a member of the AASHTO team will contact you to verify who the refund check should be made payable to and the address where the check should be mailed. Please allow 30 days for processing. 

If I cancelled my registration before the meeting was cancelled will I receive a refund of the cancellation processing fee?
