EPA 2022

On March 3-5, we will be returning to an in-person conference with the 93rd Meeting of the EPA at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.   We fully expect the 2022 conference will take place in an environment that is clean, safe and comfortable.  

Important:  Proof of COVID Vaccination will be required to enter the EPA conference. Proof of Covid vaccination is required also in all NYC restaurants (indoors), including Marriott Marquis restaurants and bars.  to view NYC guidance on proof of vaccination and guidelines click here

The Marriott Marquis adheres to the highest standards of cleanliness and follows CDC guidelines of health and safety.  Learn about Marriott's "Commitment to Clean" here.  Moreover, during the past two years, we learned that masks are an effective and simple tool to control the flu and the common cold, as well as COVID-19.  Therefore, masks will be welcome at our meeting.  For any additional questions about our health and safety plan for the 2022 meeting, direct your inquiries to epaexecofficer@gmail.com.

Please remember that only Members, Fellows, and Associates with an expiration date of May 31, 2022, may submit proposals for the meeting. The submission deadline is November 15, 2021.  If you are planning to submit a proposal, please do not wait until the last moment to pay dues, as payments may take up to 48 hours to process. All associates must have a faculty sponsor who, at the time of the submission, is a current EPA Member with dues paid for the current year (exp. 5/31/2022).  

As in recent years, another call for proposals for a special undergraduate poster session will be issued later, with a December 1, 2021 deadline.

Anniversary Society:  To acknowledge and celebrate EPA’s 125th anniversary (2020), the EPA Board of Directors established a new category of membership, the Anniversary Society.  This level of membership is available to all members and fellows.  Membership in the Anniversary Society signifies a special commitment to EPA’s mission and carries a number of additional external benefits:  a designation in the program as a “125th year member,” a hardcopy of the 2022 program, recognition at the meeting, and additional EPA merchandise.  The cost of joining EPA as an Anniversary Society member is $125.  

Dues:  EPA dues/meeting registration is $75 for Members and Fellows, and $30 for Associates. There are no additional registration fees.  Since the EPA fiscal year begins on June 1 and ends on May 31, pay your dues now and know that you are paid up through the meeting and until May 31 of next year.  To pay dues, click on Join EPA or on Renew Your Membership. You will then be given the option to renew as an Anniversary Society member (or decline).  Use your credit card to pay your dues.
