American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Postponed: ACS Cancer Accreditation Programs 2020: New Content for a New Decade

In light of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak and its impact, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) is postponing the ACS 2020 Cancer Accreditation Programs Conference: New Content for a New Decade, originally scheduled for April 22-24, 2020. We made this difficult decision out of an abundance of caution, and with concern for your safety, the safety of your patients, friends, and family. Ensuring the health and safety of our communities is our highest priority. 

The conference will be rescheduled for later in the year or early 2021 at the same location: the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL. Please contact the hotel directly to cancel your stay. For your convenience, your April 2020 registration will be refunded via your original payment method.

Please note that we will be offering the CoC/NCDB program on August 28–29, 2020 in Denver, CO. We hope you can attend either the August conference or join us for one of the Cancer Programs’ important educational activities.

We greatly appreciate your flexibility and understanding of our commitment to the health and well-being of our program leaders, their patients, and our staff.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation.
