We, like many of you, are troubled by recent actions taken by politicians in Florida to prevent teachers from discussing important and complex issues of race, gender, and sexuality in their classrooms. There may be those who think we should have pulled this meeting out of Florida in protest of these laws. While we understand this reaction, it would be impossible to move this meeting at this late date.
The fact that this is our first in-person meeting in three years is also important, so to postpone or move it fully online would be extremely disappointing. And, to be clear, those who would be hurt most by relocating the meeting are the hospitality workers who depend on the revenue from events such as ours to make their living, as opposed to the politicians who passed these laws. Our presence in Orlando will send a message to our members who live in Florida that we are there to support them as opposed to avoiding coming there at all.
To address this issue, we will have a Special Session to Address Florida's Recent Laws that Challenge, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion onTuesday, May 31, 2022 at 1:15pm for attendees to hear about the experiences of members who are impacted by such laws, directly or indirectly, affirm APS values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and discuss how members would like to see these values translated into action.

This year’s meeting will take on a hybrid format – different in structure from either a fully in-person meeting or the remote meetings of the past two years. Our hope is that the hybrid format will expand the reach of the DAMOP Meeting while bringing back the strengths of the in-person meeting.
All registered attendees for the meeting (in-person and virtual) will have access to the virtual platform. You will find live-streamed sessions, on-demand videos, and ePosters available to review. During the conference, join the video networking rooms after live streamed sessions. These allow remote attendees to continue the conversation with their fellow participants.
