COVID-19 Update

Throughout the process of planning our 2022 National Conference, our top priority has remained the health and safety of our attendees. For this reason, after much deliberation, and in consideration of the impacts of the Omicron variant, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2022 Active Minds National Conference.

We will be offering instead a curated virtual Conference on February 10, 2022 from 2-5 PM EST.
