SDBP2021Meeting

Renaissance Austin Hotel | 9721 Arboretum Boulevard | Austin, TX 78759


The SDBP 2021 Fall Annual Meeting will be live and in-person in Austin!

It has been 18 months of uncertainty, but we now plan to join together to reconnect with colleagues, renew our passions, and refresh our professional development.  After much consideration of many options, the Program Committee and the Board opted for an in-person meeting.  We also may expand our post-meeting offerings of sessions for people who are not able to attend in-person. Should a state of emergency be declared, we will respond and consider different options for the meeting.  We’re hopeful we will all meet safely in person and we’re super excited with what promises to be a fantastic meeting full of great content and much-needed networking among old and new friends.
