What are the dates of the conference?
ASPA’s 2023 Annual Conference will take place Monday, March 20 through Friday, March 24, providing a dynamic, flexible event comprising both live and prerecorded sessions. Attendees will have online access to all content for months following the conference’s conclusion.
Why did ASPA decide to host the 2023 Annual Conference as a virtual conference?
We were delighted to hold the 2022 Annual Conference in person this past spring and know our attendees were gratified to see their friends and colleagues after such a long pandemic quarantine. We also appreciate the desire to continue in person next year. That said, as organizations like ours continue to cope with the residual effects of the COVID pandemic—hotel jam-ups, extremely limited availability and demand-driven cost increases due to postponed events that we could not pass along to our attendees—we must host our 2023 conference online.
When will more details be available?
ASPA staff will use all communication platforms to announce updates as they occur. Keep an eye on your email, our website and Twitter feed for the latest developments.
How many of the sessions will take place live?
Approximately half of all concurrent sessions will take place live, with priority given to workshops and Chapter- and Section-led sessions. Other sessions will be confirmed for live participation based on presenter preferences. All Presidential Panels and plenaries will be live.

Will international participants have the same experience as U.S.-based attendees?
ASPA once again is committed to a virtual conference format that allows international attendees to receive the same conference experience as those in the United States. We will take time zones into consideration to enable live participation from around the globe and be careful about timing to ensure maximum participation. All sessions will be archived for future, on demand viewing.
Will there be opportunities for Chapter and Section events?
Yes. ASPA leaders are committed to having our Chapter and Section communities convene during the virtual conference, just as they would in person. We hope that the virtual platform will enable more opportunities to meet, not fewer. Opportunities include Chapter and Section business meetings, symposia, panels and more. More details will be released in the weeks ahead; Chapters and Sections should plan now to be as engaged, as always.
Will there be a code of conduct for the 2023 Annual Conference?
Yes. A virtual code of conduct will be provided, to which all attendees must adhere.
