A Look at Spring 2021 Updates and Events

As spring approaches, I want to give an update on what to look for from the Association in the coming months. First and foremost, I hope all of our members are staying safe and healthy in 2021 as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. 

All of us at AED look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas at the 2021 Summit, taking place from May 24-26. By now, you should have received your Summit Planning Kit, which allows you to get a firsthand look at what to expect at this year's Summit. AED has thoughtfully prepared a highly educational lineup of seminars for our members to get the most out of their Summit experience, and the featured speakers and industry panels are something that you won't want to miss. Members who are unable to travel in May can still receive the benefits of Summit by attending virtually. Those who have already registered to attend Summit in-person can change their registration to our virtual option at any time. 

Alongside the highly anticipated 2021 Summit, May will bring the launch of our Membership Directory. The directory is not only a useful tool for getting in contact with other members, but it provides in-depth information that is not typically addressed in our more frequent CED issues. 

In the 2021 directory, expect to find details about the Association and member services offered, as well as AED’s advocacy, awards and The AED Foundation.  

The Membership Directory allows our members to stay updated as contact information is refreshed and new members are added.  

Regional managers will be getting in touch with members to ensure that their contact information is current. You can help by reaching out to your regional manager to inform them if primary contact or address information needs to be updated before the 2021 Membership Directory is sent out. 

Regional Managers can be reached at:
